Kravis, Roberts Have a Pretty Good Year

KKR investors—in both senses of the word—did well last year. Two in particular did very, very well.

Henry Kravis and George Roberts, co-founders of the private-equity firm, saw the value of their 2012 compensation rise to more than $35 million apiece, up about 17% from the year before, according to a securities filing. In addition, each man collected more than $100 million in dividends paid on their stock holdings in the firm.

The payouts come as New York-based KKR distributed more than $9 billion to its fund investors last year and paid out $1.22 a share to stockholders last year — both firm records.

    You're telling me that if you co-found a PE mega fund you may some day be making millions of dollars? No way! I'm glad Shazar is here to help us find these breaking news pieces.
