NEW YORK -- Discover Financial Services Co. says its Chairman and CEO David Nelms received compensation valued at $9.92 million in the credit card company's 2012 fiscal year. That is a 28 percent drop from the prior year, and reflects lower stock awards.

Riverwoods, Ill.-based Discover says in a regulatory filing that Nelms' base salary was unchanged at $1 million. He also received $5.78 million in stock awards, down from stock awards worth $9.6 million in the previous year.
