CFOs Cash In on Stock-based Awards
Yahoo chief financial officer Susan Decker took home nearly $41 million in 2005, roughly $31 million of it from exercising stock options and selling the underlying shares. She was also awarded more than $7 million in restricted stock, four times as much as in 2004.
Decker also received a salary of $500,000, the same as last year, and a bonus of $1 million, $100,000 more than in 2004.
Stock-related compensation also played a major role in the total earnings of several other finance executives, according to proxies recently filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
