Since being forced out, Dauman has sold about $59.5 million worth of Viacom stock.

Dauman, one of America’s best-paid CEOs,  lost a battle for control of Viacom and the rest of Sumner Redstone’s $42 billion media empire to Redstone and his daughter Shari.  He agreed to resign and collected a golden parachute worth at least $72 million.
