The regulatory filing also disclosed that Nadella's total compensation package is worth $84.3 million. That total includes Stock awards of $79.7 million — $59.2 million of which he received in connection with his promotion to CEO, but which he cannot receive in any part until 2019. Included in that amount is a one-time retention stock award worth $13.5 million.
The timing of the disclosure of Nadella's pay package comes at an inconvenient time for the company, given the CEO's recent gaffe regarding women's pay in the tech industry. Nadella has apologized internally and externally several times for his remarks.
