NEW YORK (AP) — Discover Financial Services Co. says its Chairman and CEO David Nelms received compensation valued at $9.92 million in the credit card company's 2012 fiscal year. That is a 28 percent drop from the prior year, and reflects lower stock awards.
Riverwoods, Ill.-based Discover says in a regulatory filing that Nelms' base salary was unchanged at $1 million. He also received $5.78 million in stock awards, down from stock awards worth $9.6 million in the previous year.
Nelms' non-equity incentive compensation slipped to $3.12 million, from $3.2 million the previous year, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Nelms, 52, has been CEO since 2004 and chairman since 2009.
For the year ended Nov. 30, 2012, Discover earned $2.34 billion on revenue of $7.65 billion.
