It seems like BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins has quite a bit to gain from BlackBerry being sold. According to a proxy filing BlackBerry put out and had approved in May (via BusinessWeek) the actual sum is $55.6 million if BlackBerry is sold and he is terminated. If he is just terminated he is eligible for $22 million package. That includes quite a few different compensation numbers but it is in line with what other CEOs have in place according to BlackBerry’s proxy filing.
Its interesting to see how the market is pushing towards a sale now that BlackBerry has said it will entertain offers instead of just looking into it. In truth though it does not seem like much has changed.
