Smaller chunk for Munchery junk

The massive payday that CEO of bankrupt startup Munchery is expected to receive for the sale of its remaining assets is a little less massive: $125,000 rather than the $250,000 “success fee” he originally sought. James Beriker, who presided over the company’s closure and its many unpaid bills to small vendors, receives the smaller compensation package as the result of negotiations between the company and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, according to the SF Business Times.
