Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff for many years has been resolute in saying that the company would not buy a back-office company — but times have changed.

New Facebook Stock Class to Keep Zuckerberg in Driver's Seat


Facebook on Wednesday announced its board of directors is proposing a new class of shares that will allow its founder to pursue a number of different initiatives while maintaining long-term control over the company. The news came on the heels of a blockbuster first quarter earnings report. The plan calls for Facebook to offer non-voting Class C capital stock, which will allow CEO Mark Zuckerberg to pursue his long-term vision, as well as outside philanthropic work, while protecting Facebook from a dilution of voting stock and mitigating risk of a succession plan.

Yahoo Spins in Reverse


Yahoo on Wednesday announced that its board of directors decided to suspend plans to spin off its Alibaba holdings and instead will undertake a reverse spinoff, transferring its other assets and liabilities to a newly formed company. The stock of the newly formed company will be distributed pro rata to Yahoo shareholders, resulting in two separate publicly traded companies. Concern about the market’s perception of tax risk is one of the factors that led to the suspension of the planned Alibaba share selloff, said Yahoo Chairman Maynard Webb.

Yahoo May Be on Road to Oblivion


Up for discussion at Yahoo’s next board of directors meeting is the sale of its Bing-powered search, longstanding mail service, aggregator-propped news platform, and the rest of the company’s Internet business, according to reports. The possible spinoff of Yahoo’s 15 percent stake in Alibaba also may be on the table. Yahoo has struggled mightily over the last decade. One of the pioneers of the Internet age and a survivor of the Internet bubble, Yahoo’s resiliency hasn’t enabled it to retain relevancy, said Andy Abramson, CEO of Comunicano.
