Disney boss Bob Iger’s 2017 pay slipped 17.3 percent from the prior year. Don’t worry about him jumping off of Space Mountain, however — the guy still cleared $36 million.
To be more specific, Iger made $36,283,680 last year, according to a Friday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Compare that to his $43,882,396 haul in 2016.
The key differences came in the Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation and Change in Pension Value categories. That first one dropped from $20 million to $15.2 million; the latter flatlined from about $2.9 million 12 months ago.
Iger’s salary stayed flat at $2.5 million this past year. His stock awards ticked slightly up to a rounded $9 million. Options, on the other hand, dipped a bit to about $8.3 million. The Disney head honcho had roughly $1.3 million under the “Other Compensation” catch-all heading.
With his Disney buying Fox in 12-18 months, Iger will becomes an even-more valuable chairman — or perhaps he’ll have the share the wealth with all those executives he’s acquiring.
