Abstract

(VF)Dans cet article, nous suggérons que les dirigeants disposent de deux leviers d’influence pour obtenir un design de rémunération plus avantageux : leur capital social et la structure de leur conseil d’administration. L’effet de ces deux sources d’influence sur le design de rémunération des dirigeants est testé sur un échantillon composé des dirigeants des entreprises du CAC40 sur une période de 6 années. Nos résultats mettent en évidence l’impact significatif de ces deux leviers sur certaines composantes de la rémunération. L’alignement des intérêts des dirigeants et des actionnaires est dès lors potentiellement fragilisé.(VA)In this study, we suggest that CEOs may draw on two sources of influence in order to obtain an advantageous compensation structure: social capital and board structure. The impact of these two sources of influence is empirically tested using a sample of CEOs of firms belonging to the CAC40 stock index over a sixyear period. Our results highlight the significant impact of social capital and board structure on some components of CEO compensation (salary, bonus and stock-options). As a result, shareholders’ and managers’ interest alignment is potentially weakened.
