That means Cook could lose millions if Apple's stock price continues to slide. He now has a huge incentive to make sure that doesn't happen.
However, the document also states Apple's board has full confidence in Cook to lead the company.
" Mr. Cook is leading this initiative by example and has the full support of the Board of Directors," the document says.
