I hate to ruin your hate trip but the numbers you state above are way over stated. The RSU's sit in an account where they are not distributed for up to 5 years. They may if UPS has a good year end up equaling approximately 10 percent of a managers salary.Brownretiree said:UPS 2006 Long-Term Incentive Performance Awards
If you ever wonder why management is so intense about "making the numbers", the performance awards could be a big part of it. In a SEC filing, Jan. 13, 2006, the company described the awards:
"Under the Plan, restricted stock units ("RSUs") representing shares of class A common stock will be awarded to executive officers, officers and certain other eligible managers pursuant to a RSU award agreement. Target RSU award grants will range in size from 50%-250% of annual salary."
