Reg Hankey has been the CEO of Pittards plc since 2007. This analysis aims first to contrast CEO compensation with other companies that have similar market capitalization. This method should give us information to assess how appropriately the company pays the CEO. At the time of writing our data says that Pittards plc has a market cap of UK£10m, and is paying total annual CEO compensation of UK£220k.
We took a group of companies with market capitalizations below UK£161m, and calculated the median CEO total compensation to be UK£253k. Although this fact alone doesn’t tell us a great deal, it becomes more relevant when considered against the business performance. I would prefer it if there was revenue growth, but I’m happy with the modest EPS growth. It’s hard to reach a conclusion about business performance right now.
This may be one to watch. It could be important to check this free visual depiction of what analysts expect for the future . This suggests it would be unwise for the company to pay the CEO too generously. In Summary… Reg Hankey is paid around the same as most CEOs of similar size companies.
The company cannot boast particularly strong per share growth. And we think the shareholder returns – over three years – have been underwhelming. So it would take a bold person to suggest the pay is too modest. Shareholders may want to check for free if Pittards insiders are buying or selling shares.
