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.

He said that after he relinquished his director role, he would still be available to advise management when asked.
