How Does Craig Bram’s Compensation Compare With Similar Sized Companies?

At the time of writing our data says that Synalloy Corporation has a market cap of US$142m, and is paying total annual CEO compensation of US$994k. We note that’s an increase of 39% above last year. We looked at a group of companies with market capitalizations under US$200m, and the median CEO compensation was US$296k.

It would therefore appear that Synalloy Corporation pays Craig Bram more than the median CEO remuneration at companies of a similar size, in the same market. However, this fact alone doesn’t mean the remuneration is too high. We can get a better idea of how generous the pay is by looking at the performance of the underlying business.
