Samsung’s execs earn more than Apple’s. Samsung reported this information for the first time on the very day that the two companies embarked on another legal battle.
Head of Samsung Electronics Co’s mobile business, J.K. Shin, received a $5.8 million (£3.48 million) compensation package last year, beating the paycheck of his counterpart at U.S. rival Apple Inc, the South Korean firm said on Monday in its first such disclosure under new regulations.
The world’s biggest technology company by revenue said Shin’s pack included a base salary of 1.17 billion won and 1.6 billion won in incentives and performance bonus.
By comparison, Apple chief executive Tim Cook received $4.25 million in 2013, little changed from the previous year when he had been paid $4.17 million
