CEO gets $100M severance, stays with company

The Wall Street Journal reports that 81-year old Eugene Isenberg is promoting his long time lieutenant to CEO, but will remain as the company's chairman.

The drop of a title triggered a clause in his contract entitling him to the $100 million as a result of his change in responsibility. The severance payout is actually more money than the entire company netted in third quarter income.
