Yaron Ravkaie became the CEO of RADCOM Ltd. (NASDAQ:RDCM) in 2016. This report will, first, examine the CEO compensation levels in comparison to CEO compensation at companies of similar size. Then we'll look at a snap shot of the business growth. And finally we will reflect on how common stockholders have fared in the last few years, as a secondary measure of performance. This process should give us an idea about how appropriately the CEO is paid.
How Does Yaron Ravkaie's Compensation Compare With Similar Sized Companies?
Our data indicates that RADCOM Ltd. is worth US$121m, and total annual CEO compensation was reported as US$557k for the year to December 2018. While we always look at total compensation first, we note that the salary component is less, at US$269k. We examined a group of similar sized companies, with market capitalizations of below US$200m.

You can see, below, how CEO compensation at RADCOM has changed over time.
Is RADCOM Ltd. Growing?
Over the last three years RADCOM Ltd. has shrunk its earnings per share by an average of 81% per year (measured with a line of best fit). It saw its revenue drop 31% over the last year.
Few shareholders would be pleased to read that earnings per share are lower over three years. And the fact that revenue is down year on year arguably paints an ugly picture. It's hard to argue the company is firing on all cylinders, so shareholders might be averse to high CEO remuneration.
