As world goes online in pandemic, another mammoth chip deal
AMD and Xilinx is a huge tie-up in a season of massive buyouts for the semiconductor industry. Xilinx stockholders will receive 1.7234 shares of AMD stock for each Xilinx share they hold, or approximately $143 per share of Xilinx stock. AMD stockholders will own about 74% of the combined company, with Xilinx stockholders owning approximately 26%. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su will lead the combined company as CEO. The deal is expected to close by the end of next year, but still needs approval from regulators and shareholders of both companies.
CEO pay has topped $12.3M. Can it keep rising post-pandemic?
The 4.1% rise in median pay was a slowdown for S&P 500 CEOs, who had seen their pay jump 7.2% the year before and by even more in earlier years. SAY ON PAYThe slowdown in CEO pay across the S&P 500 is partly due to the increased voice investors have gotten on the subject, shareholder advocates say. The S&P 500 lost as much as a third of its value earlier this year, when worries about the recession were at their peak. Corporate profits, another key measure for CEO pay, are also expected to crater. Across the S&P 500, earnings per share will likely sink 33% this year, strategists at Goldman Sachs say.

Pay for women was up 2.3% from last year, looking at the median; the median change for men was 5.4%. The gain was driven primarily by rewards for performance, including $53 million in stock awards and $3 million in stock options, which vest over several years. To calculate CEO pay, Equilar adds salary, bonus, perks, stock awards, stock option awards, deferred compensation and other pay components that include benefits and perks. Stock awards can either be time-based, or performance-based, meaning the CEO has to meet certain goals before getting them.
