Stop the Presses! Yahoo Sets Annual Meeting!

Posted by: Rob Hof on May 05, 2008

I never thought I’d write about something so mundane as a company setting its annual meeting of shareholders. But in Yahoo’s case, it’s actually reasonably big news, because the now-aborted Microsoft deal had delayed it a long time. And now, with no small number of shareholder unhappy that deal got scotched, it’s likely to be even livelier than last year’s meeting, when former CEO Terry Semel was under fire from some unhappy shareholders. The meeting will be held on July 3.

July 3, July 3… They can’t really be thinking that setting it before a three-day holiday is going to keep it calmer, can they?

YAHOO’S SHAREHOLDERS LOSE ON MORE THAN ONE FRONT

Great to see that cool heads have finally prevailed at Microsoft. Nevertheless, it was a seriously missed opportunity by Yahoo shareholders.

They should have been more vocal. Now it's too late. Their board did not serve them well.
