Chris Albrecht made $2.4 million in 2015, down just a hair from the prior year’s $2.5 million.

In reality, it was mostly rounding differences for the Starz chief executive officer. Albrecth’s non-equity incentive plan compensation slid $28,750, while he made $300 more this time around under the catch-all “all other compensation.”

Albrecht’s salary was flat at $1.25 million. His non-equity compensation rounded to $1.2 million once again this year.

Albrecht’s big money year was 2013, when he scored a sum of $30.5 million. The vast majority of that — $27.9 million — came from option awards.

Over the course of 2015, company President Glenn Curtis actually made more than Albrecht, bringing in $2.7 million of his own. Jeffrey Hirsch, the Starz Entertainment president of Global Marketing and Product Planning made the same $2.7 million, all-told.

On Thursday, Starz reported its first-quarter 2016 financials, missing Wall Street’s forecasts on both revenue and earnings.
