KKR & Co.’s billionaire co-founders Henry Kravis and George Roberts received more than $161 million each last year, an increase of more than 17 percent from 2012, as the firm took advantage of rising equity markets to sell shares in companies.

Kravis and Roberts, both 70, earned $300,000 salaries and $44 million in mostly carried interest, or their share of investment profits, according to a filing today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Kravis received $117.2 million in dividends from his ownership of stock in New York-based KKR, bringing his total to $161.4 million, and Roberts got $121.4 million in dividends for a payout of $165.5 million.
