Equilar's estimate includes a year's worth of Agrawal's base salary plus accelerated vesting of all equity awards, an Equilar spokesperson said, based on Musk's offering price of $54.20 per share and terms in the company's recent proxy statement.
A Twitter representative declined to comment on Equilar's estimate.
Parag Agrawal, previously Twitter's chief technology officer, was named CEO in November. His total compensation for 2021 was USD 30.4 million, according to Twitter's proxy, largely in stock awards.
