Information:

Yahoo! shocked the world when they announced that they were naming Marissa Mayer as their new President and CEO. Mayer, in her mid 30s, is the youngest CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

Why would Marissa Mayer, an integral part of the Google machine, make the jump to a troubled company such as Yahoo!

Two possible answers - plenty of money and the chance to turn around a company that has been written off by many investors. Marissa Mayer is already phenomenally wealthy from her time at Google - the potential prestige from turning around Yahoo! when so many people have already tried and failed was likely the main catalyst behind Mayer taking this job. As well as the many millions of dollars..

Marissa Mayer joined Google well before the company rose to prominence. Mayer was the 20th employee of Google (she was hired in 1999) and the company's first female engineer. During her time at Google, Mayer worked on a number of the company's biggest initiatives and products, including Gmail, Google News and Google Images.

At Google, Mayer was known for her ferocious work ethic and able to solve tricky problems. Yahoo! is hoping that Marissa Mayer can work her magic and revive their floundering company before it's too late.

So how much is Marissa Mayer worth?

There is no record of her compensation at Google. However, a few clues tell us that she did very, very well:

1) She was the 20th employee at Google and joined the company well before their IPO

2) As part of her compensation package, Mayer was awarded $14 million in Yahoo! stock to compensate for missed bonuses at Google.

I think that it's pretty safe to say that Marissa Mayer would have been worth at least $150 million before she made the leap to Yahoo!

Marissa Mayer is also an investor in a number of private companies including Square and Airtime. Mayer was part of the Series A round of financing for Square that was completed in late 2009. In addition, Mayer also has pieces of Airtime, Minted, uBeam, One Kings Lane, Brit + Co. and Getaround.

Now how about Mayer's Yahoo! compensation package? Yahoo! went "all-in" on Mayer, awarding her a compensation package that could easily end up being worth well north of $100 million. The New York Times estimates that Mayer will make at least $117 million if she stays at Yahoo! for 5 years.

Let's look at what Mayer is going to receive from Yahoo:

1) $1 million in base salary

2) eligible for yearly cash bonus of $4 million

3) $30 million worth of Yahoo! stock (one-time retention equity award), 20% vests every year (based on certain performance criteria)

4) another $14 million in Yahoo! stock to compensate for missed bonuses at Google (will fully vest in three years)

5) additional $12 million in stock and options, which will vest over three years. Mayer will also get future equity grants, likely of at least $12 million or more

Marissa Mayer stands to become even wealthier thanks to her Yahoo! compensation package, especially if she is able to turn the company around.
