For just taking the seat of the most valuable company, Tim Cook, the new Apple’s CEO, is awarded with 1 million shares of Apple stock. When Steve Jobs resigned, the Apple’s stock fell about 5%, so if we take the close price, $383.58, Cook’s new stock worth $383 million.
For full bonus, to be valid, Cook must be bond with the company for the next 10 years.
“Tim Cook will likely never achieve the wealth Steve Jobs has accumulated over the years. But Cook can expect a multi-million or even billion-dollar payday a decade from now. That’s what one gets for leading the world’s most valuable company, at a time when it has the farthest to fall.” says Ben Parr from Mashable.
With this, Apple secured up the leadership for the next decade.
