Frank Barlow, managing director, made a gain of £83,700 by exercising his option over 30,000 Pearson shares granted in 1988 at 342p per share. The options were exercised at a market price of 621p.
Mr Barlow also received remuneration of £492,000 last year, made up of £300,000 in salary, £150,000 in bonus and a further £42,000 in other benefits. Mr Barlow holds further options over 320,000 shares, now exercisable under the Pearson stock plan, for a potential gain of more than £700,000 at last night's close of 555p.
