Disney Raises Stakes on CEO Iger’s Potential $135 Million Award


Walt Disney Co.’s board firmed up the stock-return goals the company must exceed for Iger to receive a massive block of shares, an opportunity that was part of his contract extension in December 2017, according to a regulatory filing Monday. Under the new terms, Iger can earn a maximum of 1.17 million shares if Disney’s stock return beats at least 75 percent of the companies in the S&P 500 Index over the four years ended Dec. 31, 2021. As of Friday’s close, that potential payout was worth $135.4 million — a figure that may increase if the ambitious goal is actually met.


  1. Walt Disney Co has profited under Bob Iger and now they need to give him what is rightfully his. I don’t understand why people make such a big deal about this, he earned it, he gets paid it.
