LONDON (Reuters) – Legal & General Investment Management said on Thursday it will vote against the re-election of Cineworld chair Alicja Kornasiewicz and the election or re-election of all members of the firm’s remuneration committee at its annual general meeting.

Cineworld, the world’s second-largest cinema operator, suffered a $3 billion loss last year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We have strong concerns about the structure of the long-term incentive plan granted to the executives, and its misalignment with the long-term interests of the company”, LGIM said in a statement, pointing to “the impact of COVID-19 on the company’s financials and stakeholders, including furloughs for employees and the suspension of dividends”.
