Tucked away in Best Buy's recent let's-be-friends deal with founder Richard Schulze are some details on the perks, financial and otherwise, that Schulze will collect in his new role as "chairman emeritus."
Footnoted, a blog that delves into security filings, reports on this week's peacemaking agreement between Schulze and Richfield-based Best Buy, which among other things will return Schulze and two other former executives to the retailer's board.
He'll get money, of course - $2.1 million plus a salary of $150,000, which was noted in Best Buy's 8-K about the agreement.
