Retired CEO Nadir Mohamed took home total compensation of $26.8 million last year, the bulk of it coming from his retirement package.

The value of his pension earned was $1.85 million in 2013.

Rogers is scheduled to report its first-quarter financial results on Monday after stock markets close.

The company's shares were 17 cents higher at $44.43 in Friday afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
