Mayer’s compensation soared 69 percent year over year, even though Yahoo shares sunk 34 percent in 2015.
None of Yahoo’s primary executives earned a bonus in 2015, but that’s largely been the case over the past three years. Mayer earned a $1 million salary, $11.8 million in stock awards, $28.2 million in options and $1.1 million through a nonequity incentive plan.

Ken Goldman, the company’s CFO, was paid $13 million in 2015, up from $6 million a year before. General counsel Ronald Bell made $4.2 million, down from $5 million, while former COO Henrique De Castro was paid $1.2 million, down from $11 million.
Yahoo co-founder David Filo, whose official title is “Chief Yahoo,” was paid $1, as has been the case for several years.
