Apple CEO gives up USD75m in dividend income

Apple Inc chief executive Tim Cook will not be earning dividend income on the more than 1 million shares to which he is entitled, which will cost him about USD75 million.

Apple said in a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday that Cook had asked to be excluded from a recently instituted company program through which employees can accumulate dividends on their restricted stock units that are still vesting.
