The Company’s CEO earned a total compensation in 2010 of $3.99 million, including a time-vested stock award worth approximately $3.7 million. However, Cogent Communications reported a net income of only $0.67 million for that year, and reported a quarterly loss of $0.28 million for the first quarter of 2011. At the same time, long term investors in the Company's stock have watched the price of their shares decline.
