Disney CEO Bob Iger hauled in $46,497,018 in 2014, an increase of 35.5 percent — not exactly mouse crumbs.
A year earlier, that total was $34,321,055 — apparently a down year for the top executive. In 2012, Iger made $40,227,848.
Over the past 12 months, Iger’s salary remained unchanged at $2.5 million. But to that, add $8,943,204 in stock awards and $8,339,396 in option awards, which were also more or less stagnant.
Iger also received a performance-based bonus of $22.810 million — that was the big change. In 2013, Iger’s non-equity incentive plan compensation was $13,570,000.
“The Committee applied a factor of 200 percent with respect to other performance factors for Mr. Iger in fiscal 2014 compared to a factor of 115 percent in fiscal 2013,” the company explained in a Friday filing. “This factor reflected the Committee’s judgment that Mr. Iger’s leadership in articulating and implementing the Company’s long-term strategy was a substantial driver of the extraordinary results in fiscal 2014 and continued to position the Company for future growth.
The change in value to Iger’s pension was $2,795,268, which didn’t increase at all a year ago. All other compensation netted to $1,109,150 — a slight uptick itself.
In November, The Walt Disney Company had reported a record $48.8 billion in revenue for 2014, up eight percent from a year-ago period.
“Our results for Fiscal 2014 were the highest in the Company’s history, marking our fourth consecutive year of record performance,” Iger said at the time. “We’re obviously very pleased with this achievement and believe it reflects the extraordinary quality of our content and our unique ability to leverage success across the company to create significant value, as well as our focus on embracing and adapting to emerging consumer trends and technology.”
