If only everyone could profit so much from losing their jobs. According to The Wall Street Journal, at least four CEOs are currently in line for payouts of more than $50 million—including $100 million to former Nabor Industries CEO Eugene Isenberg. Motorola Mobility’s chief, Sanjay Jha, could make $65.7 million as part of Google’s takeover of the company. And an additional four CEOs could make more than $30 million from deals that have already been completed or are pending. These big packages are all related to corporate mergers, although many CEOs who have been laid off had a good year, as well: HP’s Leo Apotheker received $13 million, while Yahoo’s Carol Bartz got $10 million.
