A breakdown of the current share ownership of the aforementioned eight directors has been provided below together with a valuation based on the company's share price at the time of writing.

According to data as per April 4, CEO Michael Kasbar - the other member of the nine-man board - owned 790,146 WFS shares, which would value his shareholding at more than $16.8m.

2016 Omnibus Plan

WFS's 2016 Omnibus Plan was approved on March 4, 2016, replacing the firm's 2006 version.

The plan is designed to enable the company to use different forms of compensation awards to attract new employees, executives and directors; to further the goal of retaining and motivating existing personnel and directors; and to align their interests with those of shareholders.

As Bunker Index previously reported, all nine directors were elected for one-year terms at the company's annual shareholder meeting on May 24.
