Just like his late great friend Apple founder and former CEO Steve Jobs, Larry takes home an annual salary of $1 but more than makes up for it with the stock options granted to him. With total stock option grants of $90,693,400 ($90 million) and annual incentives  amounting to $3,918,663 ($4 million) his total direct compensation for the year 2012 was $94,612,064 ($94 million).

Judging from Oracle’s continuing strong hold in the technology sphere it seems Larry Ellison’s fortunes would continue to rise in the times to come. Having founded one of the most important tech companies in history, he probably deserves all the crazy numbers that he is getting now.
