Although Tim Cook was reportedly paid $8.75 million in 2016, he actually took home $145 million, most of it from awards granted back in 2011. Take-home pay is the sum of the value of stocks vested and options exercised during the year, together with salaries, bonuses and other perks.
“Cook’s 2016 take-home pay came from the vesting of 1.26 million shares, valued at $136 million, which were awarded after he became Apple’s CEO in 2011.”
