When Yahoo's sale to Verizon is complete, Marissa Mayer will likely walk away with a $23 million severance package, CNNMoney reports, citing a company filing. The package is contingent on the sale and on Mayer, who will lose her job as Yahoo's CEO, being terminated without cause. It's not clear if Mayer will have any role with the former Yahoo's core Internet properties after they are purchased by Verizon. As for what remains of Yahoo itself, it will be renamed Altaba and "will effectively be an investment company for its Alibaba holdings," per CNN. Current Yahoo board member Thomas McInerney will take over from Mayer as CEO of that company. (Read more Marissa Mayer stories.)
