TEXT OF COMPANY STATEMENTS

 

Lee Scott leads the largest and most complex company in the world and has delivered strong financial performance. Last year alone, sales were up $37 billion and income from continuing operations increased by $770 million from the prior fiscal year.

 

Since he became CEO in 2000, annual sales have more than doubled to $345 billion and income from continuing operations has grown 126 percent to $12.2 billion. Compound annual growth rates are strong in almost every major category: net sales 12.3%, income from continuing operations 11.8%, EPS from continuing operations 12.9%.

 

We have maintained double-digit annual growth rates in sales and income from continuing operations, which is almost unprecedented for a company this size. More people than ever are shopping at Wal-Mart and that’s why we are once again the number one company in the Fortune 500.

More than 85 percent of our CEO’s compensation, as set by an independent board committee, is tied to the company’s financial performance. Lee Scott’s compensation is benchmarked with the CEOs of other publicly traded U.S. retailers and large companies. When compared to other companies, it is among the lowest as a percentage of annual revenue and net income.

 

Our associates respect that Wal-Mart has a well-recognized culture of opportunity. They are proud that their CEO started as a manager in the trucking division and has stayed with the company for 28 years. They’re also proud that his leadership -- through sustainability initiatives and the $4 prescription drug program -- reflects the company’s purpose of saving people money so they can live better.
