His compensation for the previous year had come in at $37.17 million.

Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman's compensation for the latest fiscal year amounted to $44.33 million, up 19 percent from the $37.17 million in the previous year, according to a regulatory filing on Friday.

The company, whose fiscal year ends in September, also disclosed the pay of Viacom executive chairman Sumner Redstone who had made nearly $36.2 million in the previous year. He made $13.2 million in 2014, representing a 64 percent pay-cut.

Redstone's big drop in compensation was due to "change in pension value and non-qualified deferred compensation earnings," which in 2013 amounted to $26 million but in 2014 was only $1.25 million.
