DescriptionGolden parachutes, the huge payouts some CEOs receive when they’re ousted from the top job, have been the subject of increasing public scrutiny.

But now, exorbitant payouts to chief executives of companies that have been acquired are becoming a new kind of parachute and they are even more lucrative than getting sacked, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
