A star PM and fundster entrepreneur will continue to keep his pay at $0, at least for three more months.
, chairman and CEO (and controlling shareholder) of publicly traded Gamco Investors
], will waive his compensation for the months of January, February and March next year, the Rye, New York-based mutual fund shop confirmed
yesterday. Gabelli started waiving
his comp on March 1, 2018, so by the end of next March his streak will have continued for 13 months and counting.
It's not clear how much pay Gabelli is giving up, because he is not normally paid a base salary anyway: when he is paid (for example, in 2017, when he received $69.4 million
, down from $76 million in 2016 and $75 million
in 2015), it's entirely in incentive-based variable compensation.
Of course, when Gamco does pay Gabelli, he's partially paying himself. He owns, directly or indirectly, (as of March 1, 2018) 44.55 percent of the company's class A stock (making him by far the biggest shareholder) and 98.65 percent of its class B stock (which holds most of the voting power).
