How else will Bobby Kotick afford five private jets? Imagine if he has to downgrade to only four.. My heart weeps just imagining that kind of suffering.
I'm not even surprised anymore. So much unethical stuff happens now and all that ever happens is a "this will blow over"
imagine how many wow tokens you could buy with $200 million dollars..
Acvtision's stock went up DESPITE Kotick, not because of him. That he gets such a huge bonus while others are laid off is indicative of everything that's wrong with this company and the games industry at large.
Not surprising since they fired other employees, and then didn't even give them a decent severance package, but money that is only redeemable on the blizz store
And whats the bet we see even more lay offs in the coming months? How can they justify that kind of money when it could be used to retain more people?
Me hoping for some 9.1/TBC/whatever news: existsMeanwhile Bobby Kotick and his multi-million bonuses:
While Blizzard employees get Blizzard gift cards as bonus.
value of the shares sold as stated on the document is $86,747,904.674he is still holding onto stock worth $471,246,534.24 based on the sale price on the document.
For comparison, in 2019, only one CEO in the S&P500 had total compensation (including stock awards) exceeding $70 million. Kotick will undoubtedly be among the top compensated CEOs this year.Source: https://www.wsj.com/graphics/ceo-pay-for-the-sp500/Cached link (no paywall).
