NEW YORK (AP) — Zynga CEO Mark Pincus received a compensation package valued at $1.7 million in 2011, most of it in the form of a home security system and related expenses.
Zynga Inc. said in a regulatory filing Friday that it spent $1.2 million on the one-time purchase and installation of a security system for Pincus and his family. It was included in roughly $1.4 million of "other compensation for Pincus. The company expects that this will be a one-time expense.

Zynga, which went public in December, paid its CEO a base salary of $300,000. Pincus also received a bonus of $3,750. His 2010 compensation package totaled $520,239.
The filing says that Pincus also owns about 94.6 million shares of Zynga's stock. Based on Friday's closing price, that's worth about $806 million. The company's shares have declined in recent weeks amid investor worries about the company's ability to keep growing quickly. That's even though Zynga reported better-than-expected results this week for its first quarter.
Zynga is best known for its Facebook and mobile games, which include "CityVille," ''FarmVille" and "Words With Friends."
