Compensation for Named Executive Officers
The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Committee”) has established the annual salaries and stock option allocation for 2021 for the Company’s Named Executive Officers. These salaries and option allocation are as follows:
ANNUAL SALARY
ANNUAL STOCK OPTION ALLOCATION
Reed Hastings, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board$650,000 $34,000,000 
Ted Sarandos, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Chief Content Officer20,000,000 14,650,000 
Spencer Neumann, Chief Financial Officer6,000,000 5,550,000 
Greg Peters, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Product Officer12,000,000 6,900,000 
David Hyman, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary4,725,000 4,725,000 

The number of options to be granted each month is determined by the following formula: (annual stock option allocation ÷ 12) / ([Fair Market Value on the date of grant] * 0.40). Each monthly grant shall be made on the first trading day of the month, shall be fully vested upon grant and shall be exercisable at a strike price equal to the Fair Market Value (as defined in the Company’s 2020 Stock Plan) on the date of grant. The options will be subject to the terms and conditions of the Company’s 2020 Stock Plan and will be administered on a non-discretionary basis without further action by the Board of Directors, provided that only the Board of Directors may change the amount or terms of future grants. These stock options are granted fully vested and can generally be exercised up to 10 years following the date of grant, regardless of employment status.
