(Reuters) - Ten senior Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS) executives, including Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein, were on New Year's Eve given stock pegged to earlier restricted awards worth tens of millions of dollars.
The executives, which also include Chief Operating Officer Gary Cohn, Vice Chairmen Michael Evans and John Weinberg, Global Head of Human Capital Management Edith Cooper, Chief of Staff John Rogers, General Counsel Greg Palm, Global Head of Compliance Alan Cohen, and Chief Accounting Officer Sarah Smith, got a total of 508,104 shares, according to multiple filings late Monday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
These executives sold 245,838 of those shares to cover tax obligations, and held on to the rest, which were worth $33.1 million. The shares were sold at a price of $126.24 on Monday.
The shares were not awarded as 2012 compensation; rather, they were grants that were awarded in prior years. ...................(more)
1. So you think Blankfein doesn't want you disarmed before they steal your Social Security?
The elite* want to control America and the pols that work for them, and they want the rest of us to become helpless disarmed schmucks who fight each other for the leftover crumbs.
If you think that Goldman Sachs and Wall St elites want a society of armed Americans before they steal our Social Security and pensions, I have another story to tell you. Their propaganda has convinced Americans in 2012 to become emotional instead of critical just as they did after 9-11-01.
*Elite - An elite in political and sociological theory, is a small group of people who control a disproportionate amount of wealth or political power. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elite
