Icahn to join Yahoo board after settlement

By on

Yahoo has now reached a settlement with investor Carl Icahn, who wanted to replace the current board after the company refused to sell all or a part of the company to Microsoft, with Microsoft saying it could not work with the current board.

The settlement will see Icahn, who owns 68.7 million shares (or 4.98% of Yahoo’s common stock), joining the Yahoo board and withdraw his proxy battle. This will also see another board member Robert Kotick not seeking re-election.

Another eight members are facing re-election at the next board members, and the board will expand to 11 members, adding Icahn and two other nominees from Icahn’s proposal.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
