There has been a lot of change, but not when it comes to the floundering tech giant's share price.
At this time last year, co-founder Jerry Yang still held a tight grip on Yahoo!'s board and its digital content transformation, battling with shareholders to retain the company's Asian assets. Yang has since left Yahoo!. Last week, amid the lingering management and board reshuffle, Scott Thompson was ousted as CEO. That, in turn, settled a proxy contest with activist fund Third Point, leading up to Yahoo!'s sale of a 20% stake in Chinese ecommerce giant Alibaba for $7.1 billion on Sunday.
No doubt, it's been a game-changing 12 months for Yahoo! and a busy past week, but forgive investors if they haven't noticed.
