Google Inc will pay Finance Chief Patrick Pichette a $3 million annual bonus, and Chief Business Officer Nikesh Arora a $3.5 million bonus, a slight increase from the previous year, following a year in which the Internet company’s stock surged nearly 60 percent.

Google Chief Executive Larry Page and co-founder Sergey Brin will receive no bonus, the company said Monday in a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, continuing the founders’ practice of not taking a bonus. Page and Brin, who are each paid a $1 a year in salary, have a large portion of their personal wealth tied directly to Google’s stock.

Google’s shares shot up 58 percent in 2013, breaking the $1,000 mark for the first time and outpacing the Nasdaq’s 38 percent gain for the year.

Google Chief Legal Officer and head of Corporate Development David Drummond will receive a $3 million bonus, Google said. Drummond’s bonus last year was $3.3 million.
