Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal would get an estimated $42 million (roughly Rs. 320 crore) if he were terminated within 12 months of a change in control at the social media company, according to research firm Equilar.
On Monday billionaire Elon Musk struck a deal to buy Twitter for $44 billion (roughly Rs. 3,36,400 crore), ending its run as a public company since 2013.
Musk in a securities filing on April 14 had said he did not have confidence in Twitter's management.
Equilar's estimate includes a year's worth of Agrawal's base salary plus accelerated vesting of all equity awards, an Equilar spokesperson said, based on Musk's offering price of $54.20 (roughly Rs. 4,100) per share and terms in the company's recent proxy statement.
A Twitter representative declined to comment on Equilar's estimate.
Agrawal, previously Twitter's chief technology officer, was named CEO in November. His total compensation for 2021 was $30.4 million (roughly Rs. 230 crore), according to Twitter's proxy, largely in stock awards.
