Yahoo president's salary up, overall pay down

Sue Decker gets a raise, but stock and option compensation declines in 2007. CEO Jerry Yang still got $1.

Yahoo President Sue Decker saw her salary, bonus, and incentive play payment increase from $1.35 million in 2006 to $1.76 million in 2007, but factoring in stock and options, her overall compensation declined, the company said in regulatory filing Tuesday.

Decker's stock and stock option compensation, as valued by Yahoo, dropped from $14.6 million in 2006 to $13 million in 2007, the company said.

Co-founder and Chief Executive Jerry Yang, who took over the top executive post from Terry Semel in June, got a $1 salary and no stock or new options. That figure is unchanged from the year earlier, Yahoo said.

The company also said Semel exercised stock options worth $37.8 million in 2007. Semel left Yahoo's board on January 31, the day before Microsoft offered to acquire Yahoo.
