Yahoo! Pays Carol Bartz $47m [telegraph.co.uk]
Carol Bartz, the chief executive brought in to turn around ailing search engine Yahoo!, was paid a total of $47m (£30m) last year. Most of the package - $29m - was in the form of stock options, according to a regulatory filing. She also received share awards of $13m.
This was on top of a salary of $969,872, a $1.5m bonus as part of an incentive plan and a further $2.62m, which was mostly to compensate the 61-year-old for what she forfeited when she left her previous job as chief executive of Autodesk.
