Has Foxtons been milking the taxpayer?

Apr 15, 2021
Foxtons is facing another shareholder revolt over the bonus being given to its chief executive despite taking £7m in state Covid support. The BBC reports that Foxtons plans to hand CEO Nic Budden a bonus of £389,000.
Graham Norwood, writing in Estate Agent Today reports that Budden's total pay package grew to £1.6m in 2020 compared to £1.25m in the previous year. And the BBC says this year's pay deal includes a long-term share award totalling £569,000 which can be accessed in five years' time.
The row over Budden’s bonus has been building as Foxtons’ unapologetic use of taxpayers’ money has come under scrutiny. Related articles:
