Schnatter sells $73K of stock

John Schnatter

Papa John’s founder and CEO John Schnatter sold 1,209 shares at $60.06 each yesterday, the company said in a regulatory filing moments ago — for a total $72,540.

After the sale, he owned 10,005,312 shares, excluding options, company documents show. At the current stock price, those shares are worth $600.3 million.

The 25 best-paid hedge fund managers took home a combined $12.94 billion in income last year, according to The New York Times, which makes the best-paid executives at big Louisville employers look like amateurs.

Jeffrey Immelt

Of 11 companies tracked by Boulevard, the exec with the biggest paycheck last year was GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, who got $33 million, including stock awards, the change in his pension account value, and other benefits.

Top U.S. CEO pay dips, but execs at three Louisville employers did better — much better

Median chief executive pay at nearly 300 large publicly traded companies slipped 3.8% to $10.8 million last year from $11.2 million in 2014, according to a new report in The Wall Street Journal. Still, among big Louisville employers, nine c-suite executives earned more last year, according to Boulevard‘s latest executive pay figures.

Paul Varga

Led by CEO Paul Varga, Brown-Forman executives yesterday disclosed a slew of stock transactions in a series of notices with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Varga sold 11,566 Class A shares at $103.71 each for a total $1.2 million in what appears to be tax-driven trade, according to this SEC Form 4. All SEC filings. Class A shares recently traded for $102.13, down 1%.
