Can you guess how much Mark Zuckerberg’s salary will be for 2013? Give up? The answer may shock you, but Mark’s salary will only be $1 dollar. He’s decided to pay him $1 salary so that way Facebook’s profits will remain high. Many top CEOs of other successful companies have opted for $1 a year salary. Mark is just following in their footsteps.
Don’t start feeling all bad for Marky boy. He’s a made man. He owns 28% of Facebook which when you take today’s numbers, that’s a little over in 500 million in FB stocks. When you take his stake in FB, multiply it by $19.51 (today’s price) – he has a net-worth of roughly 9.5 Billion Dollars.
Since most of his net-worth is reliant on how well Facebook’s stock do, Mark can ultimately become much richer overnight or the exact opposite.
