NEW YORK (Reuters) - Motorola Mobility Chief Executive Sanjay Jha could get a $65.7 million payout related to the company's deal to sell itself to Google Inc for $12.5 billion.

The so-called golden parachute payment would include $13.2 million in cash and $52.4 million in equity related compensation, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Google announced a deal to buy Motorola Mobility on August 15 with a view to using Motorola's technology patent portfolio to bolster its Android mobile software.

The company's expect the deal to close by the end of this year or in early 2012.
