Three-digit million amounts for controversial CEO

Microsoft Therefore, it is: After a California civil rights authority sued the COD-Publisher Activision Blizzard in July 2021, more and more information about abuses such as toxic working conditions, discrimination, harassment and opportunities inequality came to light.

Also CEO Bobby Kick stood in the criticism. It was accused, culprit covered and sacrifice threatened. Shareholder, employee and fans of the publisher demanded his resignation, whereupon the CEO announced just to resign if he could not solve the problems quickly enough. As it is to order his future after the takeover, it has not been officially announced, suggesting a lot to an end to its activity.

The CEO now probably expects a three-digit million amounts: as reports, the CEO is expected to receive a dizzying sum of $375 million (before taxes) after completion of the Deal this year.

Kick is the manager with most Activision shares: As Bloomberg continues to explain, Kick, who has its position in 2017, has nearly four million Activision shares - and thus more than all other senior employees.

CEO Brian Kelly, which follows Kick, has only 1.7 million of the company shares. If the share price was shaken by the discrimination scandal last year, then the Microsoft offered according to Bloomberg was almost competitive.

What deserved the CEO so far?

Bloomberg calls for the year 2020 a total of $155 million. The largest share of it consisted of equity premiums.

Last year, Kick's salary and his bonuses were reduced by 50 percent according to Bloomberg. However, the company announced the cuts before the lawsuit, as the excessively high sum he received previously came to criticism.

In October 2021, Kick seized the initiative in response to the scandal and loss of the shares themselves and asked the Executive Board to reduce its remuneration to the lowest legislative amount in California. This is $62,500. He renounced bonuses and share subsidies.

We know that the purchase of Activision Blizzard is a heat-discussed topic. We ask you to always be respectful and constructively discussed.
