    Sounds smart to pay the guy a good portion in stocks. Great motivation.

    Iirc none of those shards have vested yet. His deal had the shares at the back end of it end of year 3 4 and 5..

    My puny holdings have almost dou led since he started. Like that a lot. Problem is they need the go up another 60% to be even

    But it will get there

    Exactly!

    Better than someone tanking the company and taking 50 mil for doing so. Been there, done that.

    What 138 million for executing thors plan? Doesn't sound good value to me, especially given they've fired 40% of the workforce.

    That's an excessive amount of money. But I agree with a performance incentive agreement.

    Anyone know what his severance package is?

    Big deal, it's paper wealth. If the shares dive to $6 again, is he really going to have "lost" 50 million?

    The jury is still out for me on that. I'll be interested to see what happens in 12 months, 18 months and 24 months.

    Thorsten Heins did a lot of things I liked initially too - became more open with the press, got rid of a lot of execs I hated, streamlined etc. But in the end, BlackBerry 10 was not a successful launch under his watch. And it took a few quarters to see the full picture.

    I reserve the same eye for John Chen.

    Yes, because he could sell now.

    Just like in the US, I would think that Canada has regulations on just how much stock interest in their company an executive can sell.

    He can't anyway. Those shares are locked in for 3 years or something. He can add shares & sell them if he wants but that initial 3 million shares can't be touched until X date
