    Shame on AGN

    Why does AGN feel they have to shovel money to the top?

    * EVP/president Europe, Africa, and the Middle East Douglas S. Ingram received $277,570 towards the cost of his house and a private education for his children. The company said they were “relocation allowances.” It did not explain why Allergan was paying for his children’s education — it doesn’t pay for anyone else’s — or why Ingram was unable to find a decent public school on any of those three continents.
    * Similarly, R&D chief Scott M. Whitcup received an interest free home “loan” for $300,000 that will be forgiven in its entirety by the end of this year. In other words, Allergan paid for his house.

    A number of years ago, in addition to a free car for some, they paid for the gas. They stopped that. But I guess habits are hard to break.

    Oh, this is shareholder money they are spending.
