Written by on 11/09/2019

Shareholders in Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct International retail empire have voted overwhelmingly in favour of his re-election as a director of the company.

The company said that 90.99% of votes cast at the annual general meeting (AGM) on Wednesday were for his continued directorship, while 9% of shareholders voted against.

Mr Ashley owns around 62% of the high street giant.
