Hello Everyone, It's a self-made sentence. The broader context is a discussion whether CEOs should have such high salaries. Studies show that a CEO's high salary is not linked to a/the company's results. My reasoning: a) an indefinite article, because we are not pointing at any particular company b) a definite article, because it is not any company, but one in which the CEO has a high salary. Somehow I feel that the first part of the sentence defines the company. I am inclined to say a) but you never know with English articles.
