Robert Iger, chairman and chief executive officer of Walt Disney Co., collected $40.2 million in total compensation in the last fiscal year, based on regulatory reporting rules, a 20 percent increase.
Iger’s pay included $2.5 million in salary, $9.53 million in stock awards, $7.75 million in option awards, a bonus of $16.5 million and almost $4 million in other compensation
The increase came in a year when shares of Burbank, California-based Disney rose 33 percent, and Iger, 61, took on the added role of chairman. He will remain CEO until until March 2015 under his current contract. Walt Disney’s profit rose 18 percent last year to $5.68 billion.
Disney fell 0.1 percent to $52.34 at the close in New York. It has gained 5.1 percent so far this year.
