Abstract

The paper argues that the CEO compensation policy of a mining company should consider the business cycle when evaluating the CEO’s performance of long-term incentive plan (LTIP). As an example, the case study of BHP Billiton supports the argument that the business cycle significantly affects the CEO compensation, specifically to LTIP remuneration. Therefore, the CEO compensation policy of a mining company should consider the business cycle when evaluating the CEO’s performance of LTIP. There should be a qualitative judgment to adjust the impact of the business cycle and to ensure that vesting of share options is not simply obtained from a formula that may give unexpected or unintended remuneration outcomes.
