Note: Total value of options represent the intrinsic value of the awards. Intrinsic value was calculated by taking the difference between the stock price and the exercise price then multiplying it by the number of options awarded. All stock prices were taken as of May 21, 2010. The total value represents hypothetical gains, and the executive will not realize any actual value until the award is exercised. Equilar, an executive compensation research firm, looked only at options granted during the 2009 calendar year at public U.S. companies with revenue over $10 billion.
