top tech ceos
Company: eBay
Cash compensation: $4 million
Stock and options: $25.7 million
Total compensation 1-yr. change: 81%

The 81% jump in in Donahoe's salary this year is largely due to a one-time award of about $14.9 million paid in stock.

According to a regulatory filing, Donahoe got the grant because he led eBay (EBAY) "successfully through a difficult turnaround ... and positioned it well for additional growth."


Total compensation is calculated as the sum of base salary, discretionary and performance-based cash bonuses, the grant-date fair value of stock and option awards during the fiscal year, and other compensation like benefits and perks. Equilar, an executive compensation research firm, prepared the data by looking at CEOs of technology companies that filed proxies by June 3, 2013.
