NEW YORK (AP) — Nasdaq OMX Group CEO Robert Greifeld, who came under fire for Facebook's botched IPO last year, had his bonus cut by more than half in 2012, but his overall compensation for the year still rose 11 percent.

Greifeld received compensation totaling $8 million, according to an Associated Press analysis of the New York company's annual proxy filing. That's up from $7.2 million in 2011.

Greifeld's 2012 salary totaled $1 million, the same as in 2011. His performance-based cash bonus dropped 62 percent to $1.4 million, but was offset by a more than doubling of his stock awards to $5.6 million. Payments in the form of perks fell 16 percent to $77,742.
