Cigna Corp. CEO David M. Cordani’s compensation last year was 4.5 times the amount he received in 2012, according to an annual notice of executive compensation filed Friday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Cordani’s compensation was $17.76 million last year, not including $9 million in stock and stock options for which he will receive value in future years. The ultimate value of options will depend on how well the company’s stock performs.
Cordani’s total pay received includes $1 million in salary, $2.16 million in incentive-plan compensation, $3.25 million in value realized upon exercising previously granted options, $11.16 million in value realized upon stocks vesting and $152,509 in “other compensation.”
Chief Financial Officer Thomas A. McCarthy’s pay package last year was $3.87 million, not including stock awards of $1.84 million and option awards of $224,416.
In May, Cigna announced that McCarthy, a former vice president of finance, would become the chief financial officer, succeeding Ralph J. Nicoletti, who “elected to leave the company for personal reasons,” according to the company.
Nicoletti was compensated $2.9 million, not including $1.3 million in stock awards and $872,692 in option awards.
