Skinner, who announced his retirement in March, was paid $8.8 million in salary and stock awards -- including stock options -- for 2011, a 10 percent drop from his 2010 pay of $9.7 million, The Chicago Tribune reported Saturday.
As he leaves the company, Skinner will be paid an additional $10 million in cash at the end of the year, McDonald's said.
Skinner is leaving June 30 and will be replaced by McDonald's Chief Operating Officer Don Thompson.
