Wal-Mart to report how compliance targets impacted executive pay: WSJ


Wal-Mart Stores is set to report as soon as Wednesday on how its executives performed on their goals to overhaul compliance operations and how that affected their pay, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The company's board will issue a securities filing in the coming days that will detail how well executives performed on its compliance goals, such as enhancing its global anti-corruption program, the report cited the retailer's chief compliance officer, Jay Jorgensen, as saying.
