DES MOINES — The chief executive of NYSE Euronext Inc. received compensation in 2010 that was 3 percent less than the year before, primarily because stock awards and perks were lower.


CEO Duncan L. Niederauer's total compensation was $7.1 million for the year, compared with $7.3 million in 2009.

His salary for 2010 remained static at $1 million. It was the third year in a row that the company's compensation committee chose to keep executive salaries the same.

Mr. Niederauer's bonus rose 12 percent to $2.4 million from $2.1 the year before.

The AP calculation aims to isolate the value that company boards place on CEOs' total compensation packages. It includes salary, bonus, incentives, perks and the estimated value of stock options and awards.
