Tim Cook has been given 1 million shares of stock, worth more than S$462 million, to replace Steve Jobs as Apple's CEO

SAN FRANCISCO - Apple has given Mr Tim Cook 1 million shares of restricted stock as he takes over as reins of the company from Mr Steve Jobs. At current prices, the stock package is worth more than US$383 million (S$462 million). Mr Cook assumed CEO duties this week when Mr Jobs stepped aside after 14 years, saying he was no longer able to do the job. Mr Cook won't immediately have access to the stock. Half of the award vests over five years, and the other half five years after that. So the full value won't be known for years. But it has the potential to be even more rewarding if certain expectations of Apple Inc come true.
