That employee—presumably founder Christian Levett, although Clive did not identify him in the Companies House filing today—took home US$60.8 million in the 12 months to the end of February. In the prior 11 months, the employee earned US$135 million.

Clive's profits dropped from US$167.5 million to $79.5 million in the period, which included last May, when Clive lost some US$400 million on bad oil bets.
