The company also disclosed the final severance payment to former Chairman and CEO Wayne Sales, who faced criticism for a large severance package for the short time the former board member served as CEO following the dismissal of Craig Herkert as CEO in July 2012. Sales’ total severance was $4,160,769, which according to the proxy “reflects a $2.7 million reduction made at the request of Mr. Sales.”
