Nissan's Ghosn crisis

Ghosn failed to report $36m in stock-linked compensation

Sources say Nissan chairman insisted the pay did not need to be reported

Carlos Ghosn allegedly told Nissan insiders that part of his compensation package did not need to be included in annual securities reports, sources say.

TOKYO -- Nissan Motor chief Carlos Ghosn received share price-linked incentive compensation of about 4 billion yen ($35.6 million) over a five-year period that went unreported in the automaker's securities reports, sources said on Tuesday.

Nor did the reports mention compensation estimated to be between 100 million yen to 150 million yen that Ghosn received from Nissan's overseas subsidiaries, the sources said.
