Two Mystery Executives Each Reap $200 Million at Tencent in 2021
(Bloomberg) — Tencent Holdings Ltd. doled out more than $200 million apiece to two unidentified executives in 2021, even as it cut founder Pony Ma’s compensation for a year in which Beijing’s crackdown on the private sector walloped the internet giant’s stock.
The company said in its annual report that its two highest-paid individuals were not among the directors or most senior executives. One made about HK$1.599 billion, while another person made about HK$1.589 billion — the equivalent of $204 million and $203 million respectively. That would put the pair among the 20 most highly paid executives in the U.S., a roster led by Tesla Inc. co-founder Elon Musk and Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook.
