Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook's total compensation for 2012 will plummet to $4.2 million from $378 million last year, according to a company document released Thursday.
Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook speaks during a special event at the California Theatre in San Jose on October 23, 2012. Cook's total compensation for 2012 will plummet to $4.2 million from $378 million last year, according to a company document released Thursday.
In a regulatory filing, the US tech titan said the sum includes a $1.4 million salary and a $2.8 million bonus.
The total is far below what other Apple executives will pocket.
Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer will receive $68.6 million, Bob Mansfield, senior vice president of technologies, will get $85.5 and Bruce Sewell, senior vice president and general counsel, will see $69 million.
Cook's compensation last year included a $376 million bonus in the form of stocks linked to his nomination to the company's top post before the death of Jobs in October 2011.
