An influential consulting firm is advising that shareholders vote News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch and 12 others — including his two sons — off the board of directors of the media giant less than two weeks before the company's annual meeting.
Institutional Shareholders Services Inc. said Monday that an overhaul was necessary in light of the phone hacking scandal that continues to rock News Corp. and has led to government inquiries of the company in England and the United States. The firm called the debacle, which led to News Corp. shutting down its British tabloid News of the World, a "failure of board stewardship." Institutional Shareholder Services said Monday that an overhaul was necessary.
The Local Authority Pension Fund Forum (LAPFF) is the latest public sector group to issue a voting alert to its members over the News Corp board's responsibility for the phone hacking scandal at its UK publisher, News International.
Ahead of News Corp's annual meeting on October 21, the LAPFF has called for News International chairman James Murdoch to be removed from the board, arguing that his continued presence is "causing significant reputational damage" to the firm.
The group, whose 54 members have combined assets of £100bn, also wants a separation of the chairman and chief executive roles currently held by Rupert Murdoch, which it says should lead to the election of a "genuinely independent chair".
