LESS than two full days from the Dreamworld tragedy that gruesomely killed four of the park's visitors, executives from the theme park's parent company will meet to decide their annual bonuses.
Police said the victims became trapped on a conveyor belt at the theme park after a raft they were in flipped on the Thunder River Rapids ride yesterday afternoon. Two girls, aged 10 and 13, escaped.
On the long-term incentive, Mr Golden said the payment was less certain.
Dreamworld officials say the theme park will not reopen tomorrow, and it can not proceed with a memorial service that was planned.
Mr Golden said usually the reason most companies paid deferred shares was so they had the ability to claw back the payment.
The glamorous executive will face a media pack demanding answers about the theme park which represents nearly a third of Ardent Leisure's earnings.
The chairman told the media that Ardent Leisure "won't be cutting and running" from its theme park business.
The park will now stay closed until at least Monday.
Nearly 1.8 million people visited Dreamworld last financial year.
Ardent Leisure also owns and operates the SkyPoint observation deck in Queensland, Kingpin bowling centres and 76 health clubs across Australia.
WTA finals: Kerber crushes Halep, Keys downs Cibulkova
At 28, Kerber is the oldest woman to get to No. 1 for the first time but considers herself one of the lucky ones. Regardless, Halep acknowledges she will have to produce a far more polished display in order to stand a chance.
"We've reached out to the families and we've finally made contact with the Dorsett family and we are talking with them today", the former Woman's Weekly Editor said.
Six people were riding a "flume" on the park's Thunder River Rapids Ride when the incident happened.
Brian Codd, assistant commissioner for Southeast Region of Queensland Police Service, described it as "almost a miracle" that the boy and a girl, aged 12, were able to "extricate themselves".
"We're doing this through the police liaison officer and we have offered and will give them every assistance that we can and what they require during this hard time".
"It's absolutely vital that we get to the bottom of all aspects of this tragedy".
'Professional counsellors are also on site supporting staff and they will remain in the park for the foreseeable future'.
Previous theme park accidents have had material consequences for their operators.
The park will reopen on Friday for a memorial, but its future is unclear.
In the UK, Merlin Entertainments Plc, operator of the Alton Towers theme park in central England, was last month fined £5 million (S$9.02 million) by a court over a roller coaster crash a year ago that caused two people to lose limbs.
