Are Coca-Cola executives getting too sweet a deal? Value investor and fund manager David Winters thinks so. But the Atlanta beverage giant called his statements "misinformed" and said they "do not reflect the facts." Winters, CEO and founder of Wintergreen Advisers, sent letters to Coca-Cola 's shareholders, its board, and shareholder Warren Buffett, criticizing the company's proposed 2014 equity plan. Winters said the plan "will significantly erode the per-share value of Coca-Cola shares," and "If approved, this plan...will dilute existing shareholders by a company estimated 14.2 percent." He continued, "In effect, the board is asking shareholders for approval to transfer approximately $13 billion from all of our pockets to the company's management over the next four years." less
