Executive compensation is composed of both the financial compensation executive pay and other non-financial benefits received by an executive from their employing firm in return for their service. It is typically a mixture of fixed salary, variable performance-based bonuses cash, shares or call options on the company stock and benefits and other perquisites all ideally configured to take into account government regulations, tax law, the desires of the organization and the executive. The three decades from the s saw a dramatic rise in executive pay relative to that of an average worker's wage in the United States,  and to a lesser extent in a number of other countries. Observers differ as to whether this rise is a natural and beneficial result of competition for scarce business talent that can add greatly to stockholder value in large companies, or a socially harmful phenomenon brought about by social and political changes that have given executives greater control over their own pay. The rate of executive pay is an important part of corporate governance , and is often determined by a company's board of directors. In a modern corporation, the CEO and other top executives are often paid a salary, which is predetermined and fixed, plus an array of incentives bonuses commonly referred to as the variable component of the remuneration package.

In the wake of certain corporate scandals, many stakeholders are questioning if current high levels of executive remuneration, world-wide, are in fact related to company performance. After the implementation of King III in , there has been an expectation that governance has improved in South African companies. If so, empirical testing should find executive remuneration to be positively related to forms of performance that reflect an increase in company value, like Tobin's Q, or return on assets, rather than measures such as total revenue. Agency theory predicts that if executive remuneration is not carefully designed to maximise the value of the company, executive directors will tend to maximise revenue instead. To test this prediction, hand-collected panel data from Johannesburg Stock Exchange company reports are linked to company performance data to test this prediction, across the years —, post King III. Results challenge certain important assumptions.
