The cuts will impact executives ranging from CEO Pat Gelsinger to mid-level managers. Gelsinger will have his base salary cut by 25%.

Gelsinger’s pay cut would be a little over $312,000. Like many chief executives, the vast majority of Gelsinger’s compensation is from stock awards and options. Gelsinger’s base pay was $1.25 million, according to his offer letter, or just a small fraction of his nearly $179 million in total compensation for 2021, his first year in the top job.

“As we continue to navigate macro-economic headwinds and work to reduce costs across the company, we’ve made several adjustments to our 2023 employee compensation and rewards programs. These changes are designed to impact our executive population more significantly and will help support the investments and overall workforce needed to accelerate our transformation and achieve our long-term strategy,” the company said.

The company reported a net loss of $644 million for the fourth quarter of 2022 and offered a weak 2023 outlook including a 40% year-over-year decline in sales in the March quarter. Intel rival AMDother hand, beat on both the top and the bottom lines but guided down 10% for the upcoming quarter.
