The chief of the No. 2 cable company lost about $1M in non-equity incentives, but otherwise held steady vs 2010, according to Time Warner Cable’s proxy statement. The package: $1.3M salary, $3.2M stock awards, $4.2M option awards, $7.2M non-equity incentives, $111,910 change in pension value, and $439,456 in other compensation. The “other” category includes $339,779 for personal use of of the company aircraft. Time Warner Cable shares lost 2.8% of their value in 2011. Britt made nearly twice as much as COO Robert Marcus. But his $8.4M compensation was up 38.7% to reflect his additional title last year as company president and “the importance of retaining him in light of the Board of Directors’ long-term succession planning strategy.” Britt’s compensation was 3.8 times higher than the average for Time Warner Cable’s other top executives. Corporate governance watchdogs usually consider that to be lopsided, and a red flag for investors.
