Marissa Mayer got a pretty sweet six-month anniversary gift from Yahoo: She spent just half of 2012 as CEO, and got a $1.12 million cash bonus for her troubles, CNNMoney reports. She also received restricted stock worth $13.3 million, according to company filings. This year Mayer, who started with Yahoo in July, will get the same $1 million base salary she received in 2012, plus a cash bonus of as much as $2 million. She already held stock shares and options worth $47.2 million. (More Marissa Mayer stories.)
