In ACCA P1 there is often talk about the independence of members of the board. Here is an article where shareholders concerned about this and they have written to the board.  

在ACCA P1学习中,我们经常谈论董事会成员的独立性问题,以下是有关股东向董事会写信并对这个问题提出质疑。

 

A group of Tesla shareholders has questioned the independence of the electric carmaker's board, warning it is too close to boss and co-founder Elon Musk.

一些股东对Tesla  - 电动汽车制造商董事会的独立性提出了质疑,警告其董事太接近老板和创始人Elon Musk。

 

In a letter, they said the board was "largely unchanged" since the firm went public and at risk of "groupthink".

他们在信中说,自从公司上市以来,董事会“基本没有变化”,并面临着“小组思考”的风险。

 

They urged it to re-elect members annually and to add two new independent directors to the board.  

他们敦促每年重选董事会员,而且在董事会中增加两名新的独立董事。

 

The shareholders include the California State Teachers Retirement System, Hermes Equity Ownership Services and CtW Investment Group, among others, and collectively manage assets worth $721bn (£547.5bn).

股东包括加利福尼亚州教师退休制度,爱马仕股权服务和CtW投资集团等,并共同管理价值7210亿美元(5475亿美元)的资产。

 

In a letter to Tesla lead independent director Antonio Gracias, they called for action before the firm launched its Model 3 sedan later this year - its first vehicle aimed at the mass market.

Tesla领导独立董事Antonio Gracias的一封信中,他们呼吁,在今年晚些时候,该公司推出其 “3型” 轿车之前,他们首先采取行动,这是其首款面向大众市场的车辆。

 

"While meeting the technical definition of independence, five of the six current non-executive directors have professional or personal ties to Mr Musk that could put at risk their ability to exercise independent judgment," the letter said.

“在符合独立性的技术定义的同时,六位现任非执行董事中有五名与Mr Musk有专业或个人关系,可能会冒有独立判断能力的风险。” 

 

"A thoroughly independent board would provide a critical check on possible dysfunctional group dynamics, such as groupthink." 

“一个完全独立的董事会提供了对团队有效运营的可能性,并对独立性进行核查,如群体思维。” 

 

The concerned group thinks there are too many personal ties between board members at Tesla, potentially clouding judgement. But there are other investors who support Tesla precisely for that reason: it's Mr Musk's team, vision and ambition. And so far he's doing very well.

有关团体认为,特斯拉的董事会成员之间的个人关系太多,可能会造成混淆。但也有其他投资者正是因为这个原因支持Tesla:这是Mr Musk的团队,愿景和野心。 到目前为止,他做得很好。
