As long as the gift they gave to themselves in stock rewards only vest if dividend performance is maintaned and debt stays low the change in comp is barely acceptable. Free stock dilution to existing shareholders for new hires is fine but management giving themselves more stock after their original promote is in the money and now earns them cash monthly in addition to salary and now more monthly cash from the free stock awards seems rich.   But I guess they listened when i said fuggetabout options, since they will not hit those strike prices before they expire anyways.
