DuPont Co. chairwoman and CEO Ellen Kullman received compensation valued at almost $12.3 million last year, a 9 percent increase from 2010.

The chemical giant, based in Wilmington, Del., said in a regulatory filing Friday that Kullman showed strong leadership during the year, with sales and earnings per share, excluding one-time items, increasing by double-digit percentages.

Kullman received a base salary of $1.3 million, a 3 percent increase. Her stock awards grew by 17 percent to $5.5 million, while her option awards grew 15 percent to $2.5 million.

Kullman's executive perks jumped 51 percent last year to $464,181, up from $307,514 in 2010.
