今天的功课(一)
03 月08 日
股东起义 拯救米老鼠
Shareholders revolt to save Mickey Mouse


斯坦利•戈尔德(Stanley Gold)点上一支大雪茄,思忖着沃特迪斯尼公司(Walt Disney)精彩的股东起义。戈尔德先生是“拯救迪斯尼”运动的联合领导人之一。
 Stanley Gold, co-leader of the Save Disney campaign, lit a fat cigar as he contemplated the stunning shareholder revolt at Walt Disney.

周三迪斯尼股东的投票结束后,戈尔德先生站在费城会议中心对面Loews宾馆的门外开怀大笑:“这是股东们的彻底胜利。结论很明确。”
 Standing outside Philadelphia's Loews hotel, opposite the convention centre, after the Wednesday's shareholder vote, Mr Gold smiled broadly. "It's a resounding victory for shareholders. The verdict is clear."

迪斯尼董事会很不情愿地同意了股东的意见:在股东投票结果公布数小时后,董事们一致投票决定,将公司董事长和首席执行官职位分开。在掌控迪斯尼18年之后,迈克尔•艾斯纳(Michael Eisner)在迪斯尼身兼二职的统治地位结束了。
 Disney's board reluctantly agreed. Within hours of the result, the directors voted unanimously to split the roles of chairman and chief executive. After 18 years at the helm of the company, Michael Eisner's dominant, combined role was at an end.

由于代表43%股权的股东表示,不支持艾斯纳一人续任上述两个位置,因此董事会必须有所转变。
 With investors representing 43 per cent of shares withholding their support for his re-appointment to both posts, boardroom changes were inevitable.

但是,尚不清楚这种改变是否足以安抚股东。对于迪斯尼的业绩、公司治理和管理层,许多股东深感不满。
 Less clear is whether the changes go far enough to placate shareholders, so many of whom are deeply unhappy with the company's performance, its governance and its management.

公司主管董事、前美国参议院多数党领袖乔治•米切尔(George Mitchell)将成为新的董事长,但在周三的投票中,他遭到了代表24%股权股东的反对。
 George Mitchell, the company's presiding director and former senate majority leader, is to become chairman - but he was rejected by 24 per cent of investors in Wednesday's vote.

机构股东服务公司(ISS)的帕特里克#麦格恩(Patrick McGurn)表示:“这个董事会必须坐下来,做出一些艰难的抉择。我们从未见过哪位在任董事长及首席执行官得到这么多(反对)票。”这个团体曾向迪斯尼施加压力,要求将董事长和首席执行官职位分开。
 Patrick McGurn of Institutional Shareholder Services, the group pressing for a separate chairman and chief executive, says: "This board has to sit down and make some hard choices. We have never seen a sitting chairman and chief executive receive a vote of this size."

戈尔德先生和罗伊•迪斯尼(Roy Disney)组织的“拯救迪斯尼运动”则更不客气。戈尔德先生说:“股东们已经等待太久,话也说得够清楚了……迈克尔•艾斯纳必须现在就走。仅将董事长和首席执行官职位分开那还不够。”罗伊•迪斯尼去年辞去迪斯尼副董事长一职。
 The Save Disney campaign, orchestrated by Mr Gold and Roy Disney, who last year resigned as Disney vice-chairman, was blunter. Says Mr Gold: "Shareholders have waited too long and spoken too clearly . . . Michael Eisner must leave now. It is no longer sufficient to separate the role of chairman and CEO."

目前看来,迪斯尼似乎决心要渡过这场风暴。公司在一份声明中表示:“在股东投票过程中,似乎有许多不同的力量在发挥作用。”
 For the moment, Disney appears determined to ride out the storm. In a statement, it said "there appear to have been a number of different forces at work in the shareholder vote".

尽管董事会同意将董事长和首席执行官的职位分开,但它重申,支持艾斯纳先生及其战略。董事会表示:“目前公司收益水平尚可,且预计利润将继续改善,因此我们确信,最终结果将证明,我们对公司管理团队素质的判断是正确的。”
 While agreeing to split the roles of chairman and chief executive, the board reiterated its support for Mr Eisner and his strategy. "The level of earnings and improved returns we expect going forward make us confident that results will validate our judgment on the quality of our management team," the board said.

同时,董事们再次拒绝了有线电视巨头康卡斯特(Comcast)的恶意收购要约,称其近600亿美元的报价还不够高。
 The directors also dismissed again a near-$60bn hostile bid from Comcast, the cable giant, saying the offer remained inadequate.

迪斯尼董事会的态度令股东和分析师对迪斯尼是否有所改变感到疑惑。
 Disney's stance has left shareholders and analysts wondering what has changed.


