But a large part of his pay package is in stock and options that have dropped in value from $11.9 million when they were granted in March of last year to just over $682,000 currently.

The troubled automaker disclosed the amounts in its annual report filed Thursday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Wagoner has agreed to accept a salary of $1 this year as part of the company's restructuring plan.


Many of his stock options are now worthless since the company's shares have plummeted below $2.
