This is a lot of money to pay an 80 year old,but on the other hand making jobs for 15,000 workers is a pretty great thing. I would think that with salaries like this there might be room somewhere for a dividend payments.
He puts it all back in the company....this is exceptional! I can't think of any company that does that except Berkshire of course.
What do you mean "he puts it all back in the company" ???The only place he puts his exorbitant salary, bonus,and options profit is in his own bank account.Plain and simple: HE'S OVERPAID. WAY OVERPAID. And he's been overpaid for years. Ten years ago (2000) NBR was trading at $23 a share. Today it's trading at $16.50. Yet over the past ten years Isenberg has probably collected $1 billion in compensation.
Who does not want more money?It is just greedy.
