Monsanto CEO gets well-deserved $600 million bonus for last year

The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Monsanto, Hugh Grant, received a performance bonus of more than $600 millions for the 2017 fiscal years, announced the multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation this morning.

After being questioned on the subject by investors on Wednesday during Monsanto Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2017 Earnings Conference Call, the company Board of directors released the information this morning, announcing that it had granted Mr. Grant $603.45 million in an annual bonus, including $574 million in restricted stock units.

Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President, Pierre Courduroux, justified the bonus by saying that despite the fact that the year was a bit disappointing in terms of sales and profits, the company had built some “very solid and concrete bases” for many future projects.

“Some of you might be alarmed by the plummeting profits, but we are extremely optimistic for the future,” Mr. Courduroux told reporters. “In the last year, we were victims of ridiculous accusations concerning the Zika virus, but we expect some record profits over the next few years. We’ve made a lot of investments which should start paying up soon, and we’ve decided to reward Mr. Grant for the important role that he played in generating these future profits. This guy is a genius, and $600 million is a very small price to pay for such a brilliant mind!”


According to Mr. Courduroux, the false accusations made by some South American doctors, which had linked one of their products with the numerous cases of birth defects, are largely responsible for the fall in the company’s profits.

Monsanto announced on Wednesday, that its profit had fallen by 25% in the second quarter compared to the same period a year ago.

According to most experts, the company has suffered as farmers cut back on spending, squeezed by plummeting commodity prices. Its bottom line has also been pressured by the strong dollar and price cuts on products, spurred by competitors.

Despite these setbacks, the leaderboard of the corporation, which has a long history of working with agricultural producers to boost yields and come up with valuable innovations, seems confident to be able to bounce back over the next few months.

  1. “Well Deserved”? wtf he should be punished for crime against humanity

  2. He should not be given a penny with a salary of $19.5 M but it’s how the globalist reward their peons for committing murder around the globe.
    These satanic, murderous excuse for a human being hate mankind and wish to carry out their “Agenda 21” program to reduce the population to 500 Million.
    You can find their white papers on Google or
    This corporation does not allow any of the foods they produce in their corporate cafeteria – that speaks volumes!!



  4. Plummeting profits will plummet until you no longer exist Monsanto. Hope to see the end of you yet. Give us back our organic non tampered seeds and get rid of the roundup. I boycott stores that sell roundup.

  5. he looks like he has auto immune disease from eating all his own gmo foods. Just waiting to see the tumours growing out of his neck and other parts.
