Apple CEO Tim Cook's pay package drops 99 per cent from 2011
Tim Cook was awarded total compensation of $4.17 million in 2012, down from $378 million in 2011.
New Delhi: Tim Cook has finally made it to the top at Apple Inc, but in his first full year as CEO his pay package shrank about 99 per cent.
Cook, the successor to the late Steve Jobs, was awarded total compensation of $4.17 million in 2012, down from $378 million in 2011, Apple said in a federal filing on Thursday.
The 2012 compensation package for Cook, who took over as chief executive in August 2011, also seemed a pittance compared with his 2010 pay, which was 14 times higher, when the executive served as chief operating officer.
Jobs, the iconic CEO and co-founder, died in October 2011 of pancreatic cancer.
The maker of the iPhone and iPad noted that Cook will not receive any stock awards for 2012 after he was given about $376.2 million in stock awards the year before. The stock awards vest over many years.
The 2012 package includes a salary of $1.4 million and a nonequity bonus of $2.8 million, according to the filing. Cook's base salary actually increased compared with the $900,000 he earned in 2011.
While Apple's shares are 35 per cent higher than when Cook assumed the CEO role, they have fallen more than 27 per cent since October when they hit a $700.10 high.
