Walmart’s top eight executives recently received a second round of deferred compensation bonuses worth an estimated $39 million based on financial performance in fiscal 2018.

The restricted stock payment and vesting of previously restricted shares reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission follow 97,713 shares of restricted shares awarded to the same eight executives in January.

Walmart Stores has touted the myshare bonuses paid to store employees and committed additional bonuses ranging from $200 to $1,000 based on years of service. Walmart said $400 million of the $700 million in estimated tax savings resulting from federal tax rule changes went to its employees in the form of bonuses, with the remaining $300 million used to raise the starting wage from $10 to $11. The bonuses were paid last week across the country.

This round of deferred equity compensation totaled 437,679 shares of restricted stock that will fully vest on Jan. 31, 2020, as long as the executive remains employed by the retailer. The payments made to the top executives at Walmart are in addition to cash bonuses and salary which will be reported in mid-April when the annual Proxy is filed with the SEC. The restricted stock was awarded on March 9.
