How much does Hemispherx CEO Bill Carter earn?
Carter was paid $1 million in salary in 2011. With bonuses, stock options and other perks, his total compensation for the year was $1.5 million. Carter's salary alone has doubled since 2009 -- the year that Ampligen was rejected.
Hemipsherx is using an ATM to raise money ahead of the Ampligen FDA panel because Carter uses the company and its shareholders as a different sort of ATM -- an automated teller machine.
