Thank you. I have two questions:

1. Does the above statement mean that any severance pay or other special
compensation Lila Tretikov might have received at the end of her tenure in
2016 will only show in the 2016 Form 990, due in about a year's time?

2. Speaking of severance pay, I note that Erik Möller's compensation seems
to have increased from almost exactly $200,000 in the 2014 calendar year[1]
to a little over $302,000 in the 2015 calendar year[2], despite the fact
that, as far as I recall, he left the Foundation on April 30th 2015[3] and
thus only worked 4 of the year's 12 months.

If Erik was paid at the same rate in 2015 as he was in 2014, he would have
stood to receive salary payments of around $67,000.

This is almost a quarter of a million dollars less than his actual
compensation according to the form released now.

Is this $235,000 discrepancy wholly or partly due to a severance payment
Erik received at the end of his employment, and if so, what was the amount
and the rationale?
