SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Starbucks CEO and founder Howard Schultz's compensation rose nearly 45 percent to $22 million in fiscal 2010 as the company roared back from the recession with rising revenue and profit nearly twice 2009's.
Schultz, who had left the company but returned during the recession to lead its turnaround, got a salary of $1.3 million, double what he received in 2009, according a company filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday.
He also got non-equity compensation of $3.5 million and $16.7 million in stock and options. That's 35 percent more stock and options than he received in fiscal 2009.
Schultz received $231,664 worth of perks, about 75 percent less than in 2009. That included more than $210,000 in personal security, about $6,000 in insurance premiums and a $15,000 retirement plan contribution.
Seattle-based Starbucks' net income nearly doubled as its revenue rose 17 percent for the fiscal year that ended Oct. 3. The improvement came as more people visited its cafes and spent more time in them.
Starbucks, which reported last week that its first-quarter net income rose 44 percent from a year earlier, expects the good news to continue for the rest of fiscal 2011.
The company said more customers came into its stores and spent more during 2010's holiday season.
The Associated Press formula is designed to isolate the value the company's board placed on the executive's total compensation package during the last fiscal year. It includes salary, bonus, performance-related bonuses, perks, above-market returns on deferred compensation — of which Schultz received none — and the estimated value of stock options and awards granted during the year.
The calculations don't include changes in the present value of pension benefits, and they sometimes differ from the totals companies list in the summary compensation table of proxy statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which reflect the size of the accounting charge taken for the executives compensation in the previous fiscal year.
