In addition, the greater part of the organization’s present board individuals — including Marissa Mayer, its CEO — would venture down.
It is basically a play on the single greatest resource that would stay of Yahoo if and when the arrangement with Verizon shuts: a 15 percent stake in the Chinese web based business monster Alibaba.
