Carol Bartz, who was fired Sept. 6 as Yahoo! Inc.’s chief executive officer, stands to receive a payout in the range of $10 million after less than three years on the job.
Bartz, 63, would have received $10.4 million, including cash and equity, had she been fired at the end of last year, according to a April 29 filing by the company that estimated the payout. In addition, Bartz is still eligible for vesting stock options based on the shares reaching certain milestones in the future.
