Nissan CEO to return $400,000 in performance based pay

Posted by

Nissan auditors found that CEO Hiroto Saikawa received a higher amount of performance based pay than what he was entitled to. Saikawa earned $400,000 in additional payments after the execution date of his stock appreciation rights was changed to a date in which the company’s stock price was higher. According to the auditors’ findings, which will be presented to the board, Saikawa did not commit any wrongdoing.
