Plum Creek Timber's CEO Rick Holley received a $1.86 million bonus in the form of 44,445 restricted company stocks on Feb. 3 2014.

On Dec. 12, Holley gave back his awarded bonus because company shareholders had not seen a return in their investments during his tenure as CEO, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission 8-K filing.
