Apollo Formalizes Stock Pay Plan (FINalternatives)
Apollo Global Management LLC (NYSE:APO) has clarified its plan to pay top partners and executives some of their bonuses in stock instead of cash, a policy that has led to grumbling among those affected, as well as a number of departures. The private-equity giant said in a Thursday regulatory filing that partners and other top managers would receive at least some of their share of the profits, rather than cash. The shares would vest over three years.
