Jan 21 Hewlett-Packard Co (HPQ.N) Chief Executive Mark Hurd's total compensation for fiscal year 2008 rose over 68 percent to about $42.5 million, the company said in a regulatory filing.
The compensation also included bonuses from previous years.
In a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Tuesday, the world's largest personal-computer maker said the compensation included salary of $1.45 million, a $5.3 million bonus, $12.9 million in stock awards and $18.6 million in non-equity incentive plan compensation.
The company proposed last week that it give shareholders a say in executive compensation from 2011, though their input would not be binding.
