The board increased Nadella’s compensation because of business targets and the company’s share price rising. However, this is almost half compared to the 2014 compensation. That year, Nadella received $8.43 million.

Microsoft’s independent directors, reviewing stock compensation, cited Nadella’s strategic leadership — strengthening trust with customers, changing company practices, new technology and successful entry and expansion into new markets.

Microsoft said that under the leadership of Nadella, the company’s market cap increased by $509 billion in the last 5 years. The total shareholder returns of the company increased by 97% during this period. Nadella’s income also increased with this.

Microsoft became the world’s highest-valued company, surpassing Apple last year. Microsoft’s current market cap is $1072 billion and Apple’s is $1059 billion.
