If you've been wondering who still uses the Internet portal Yahoo, and how they're making money, you're not alone. The company's core business has a market valuation of $0.00, by some estimates.
So, it's no wonder that the current gossip surrounding Yahoo is that it may be for sale. Which would leave its well-known CEO Marissa Mayer in a precarious place.
She's made news over the years for being extremely well paid, among other things. Last year, she made $42 million, according to USA Today, and that was up from $24.9 million in 2013.
So, she's not hurting for money. But, as it turns out, she'll be handsomely compensated if another company buys Yahoo and ousts her.
That's because there's a clause in her contract that stipulates how she'll be compensated if she's let go by a new owner. In fact, she's looking to make nearly $160 million for getting fired.
