// Frasers Group CEO Michael Murray will waive his £1m base salary until the end of the business’s financial year
// Murray will receive a £100m bonus if the business achieves a pre-tax profit of at least £500m and a £15 share price for 30 consecutive dealing days
Frasers Group has confirmed it will be waiving new chief executive Michael Murray’s £1m base salary until the end of the business’s financial year.
Until then, Murray, who succeeded his future father-in-law Mike Ashley back in May will waive his salary in order to allow the retail giant to focus on achieving a pre-tax profit of at least £500m and a £15 share price for 30 consecutive dealing days.
If the two conditions are met before October 2025, Murray is set to receive a £100m bonus in line with his agreement with Frasers Group announced back in September 2021.
