Chairman-Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger received $36.3 million in compensation during the fiscal year ended September 30, down 17% from the previous fiscal year. His pay will probably more than double in fiscal 2018.

To be more specific, Iger made $36,283,680 previous year, according to a Friday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The key differences came in the Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation and Change in Pension Value categories.

Shrinking TV viewership and fewer films caused annual sales and profit to fall for the first time in nearly a decade, but Disney took steps in other areas to boost growth. Disney announced a $52.4 billion stock deal in December to buy the entertainment assets of 21st Century Fox.

Disney boss Bob Iger's 2017 pay slipped 17.3 percent from the prior year.

In conjunction with the Fox deal, he signed a new contract that boosted his regular compensation and entitled him to an additional US$100 million in stock awards. He has postponed his planned retirement four times.

Iger will get paid more during the current fiscal year.

Iger's pay package for the fiscal year ended September 30 included a $2.5 million base salary along with stock and options awards and more. Chief Human Resources Officer M. Jayne Parker's pay also fell to $5.09 million from $5.6 million.
