Development Securities Investors Rebel on Pay, Sunday Times Says

Development Securities Plc (DSC) shareholders want to reduce executive compensation and are calling on the company to extend a buyback of stock, the Sunday Times reported, citing an unidentified investor.

The company, owner of the Manchester Arena music venue, trades at a 45 percent discount to its net asset value, the newspaper said. Investors may consider seeking a change of management after executives collected 2.6 million pounds ($4 million) in salaries and bonuses last year, according to the report.
