Peppa Pig owner Entertainment One rocked by pay revolt

Peppa Pig owner Entertainment One has been hit by its second investor revolt in two years over the pay of its boss, who raked in £1.9million last year.
Almost four in ten shareholders voted against the TV and film distributor's remuneration report at its AGM in a setback for chief executive Darren Throop.
His pay compares with £203,000 for chief financial officer Joseph Sparacio and £362,000 for chief corporate development and administrative officer Margaret O'Brien last year.
Throop, 54, earned £1.7million in 2016 and has had a 62 per cent pay rise over the past three years. 
It is a blow for the Canadian after almost 40 per cent of investors also opposed his pay last year. 
Shareholder advisory group Glass Lewis had urged them to vote against the remuneration policy, citing 'successive significant salary increases' and 'poor response' to last year's dismay over pay.
Meanwhile, more than 36 per cent opposed the re-election of Mark Opzoomer, who chairs the remuneration committee, as a director.
Entertainment One, which distributes films such as The Hunger Games and TV series The Walking Dead, claimed Throop's package was necessary to keep him at a UK-listed firm because pay in the US was 'highly competitive'.
