VF Corp. chief executive officer Eric Wiseman saw his total compensation leap by a third, to $14.2 million, and its cash portion expand one-sixth, to $4.1 million, in 2012 as the company logged double-digit growth in sales and profits.
Wiseman, chairman, president and ceo of VF, had a $100,000 increase in salary, to $1.2 million, and a 19.5 percent increase in his cash bonus, to $2.9 million. His maximum possible cash bonus, referred to as “nonequity incentive plan compensation,” was $3.4 million.
Wiseman’s stock and option awards totaled $5.9 million last year, 20.9 percent above their 2011 level. Because of stock fluctuation and vesting schedules, the full amounts of these awards might not be realized by the executive but public companies are required to report them to the Securities and Exchange Commission at “grant date fair value.”
Wiseman’s pay package received a $2 million boost from an actuarial adjustment in the “change in pension value and nonqualified deferred compensation earnings column,” recorded at $4.1 million last year versus $2.1 million in 2011.
Bolstered by its acquisition of Timberland, VF’s full-year net income last year rose 22.3 percent to $1.09 billion as revenues rose 15 percent to $10.88 billion. The company’s other brands include Wrangler, Lee, Seven For All Mankind, The North Face, Nautica and Vans.
