Bonus shares earned Lei Jun's value could jump up to the US $ 1.79 billion when Xiaomi start offering its shares to the public. Certainly assuming the value of Xiaomi's shares when released to the public later in accordance with the initial estimates.

But clearly, the bonus shaped shares received Jun did not have any conditions, such as the performance of Xiaomi in the future, or the success of its IPO that will occur in July.
Bonus earned Lei Jun is passed a number of the biggest bonus in the history of technology companies. For example, CEO of Snapchat Evan Spiegel received a bonus of US $ 638 million in February, which was then the biggest stock bonus since 2011.
