Nokia CEO Stephen Elop to get $25M for Microsoft buyout
Nokia chief executive Stephen Elop is reportedly set to receive 18.8 million euros (~$25.5 million USD) if Microsoft <a href="http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/03/microsoft.makes.big.step.into.mobile.with.nokia.bu y/">completes its buyout</a> of the Finnish company's phone business. The severance package will be primarily funded by Microsoft, though Nokia has committed to contributing 30 percent of the total. <br /><br />The estimated payout was disclosed in a recent Securities and Exchange Commission filing, which was <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294340==http://www.business-standard.com/article/pti-stories/stephen-elop-to-get-usd-25-5-mn-post-microsoft-nokia-deal-113091901115_1.html" rel='nofollow'>spotted</a> by <em>Business Standard</em>.<br />
<br />
Elop will step down from his position as Nokia CEO and is contractually prohibited from immediately taking a job with the company's competitors, save for Microsoft. The executive is widely viewed as a potential successor to Microsoft's current CEO, Steve Ballmer, who is <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/294341==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/23/ballmer.to.remain.ceo.until.replacement.chosen.by. board.committee/" rel='nofollow'>scheduled to retire</a> within the next 12 months.<br />
<br />
The Redmond-based software giant has agreed to pay $7.2 billion for Nokia's wireless division, pending regulatory approval and a shareholder vote in November.
