Yahoo board is the latest focus of troubled company

Yahoo board

Yahoo's nine-member board of directors increasingly finds itself front and center in deciding the company's future, including the potential sale of Yahoo's core Internet assets. Last week, it convened three days and, as part of the proceedings, received a presentation from Starboard Value, a major Yahoo investor that implored the board to scrap its planned spinoff of a 15% stake in e-commerce giant Alibaba and sell assets.
