Yahoo shareholder blasts company for board snub

Rebellious Yahoo shareholder lashes out after company decides he isn't good fit for board By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' A major Yahoo shareholder passed over for a seat on the troubled Internet company's board is blasting the decision as illogical.

Hedge fund manager Daniel Loeb described the snub as a glaring example of shoddy corporate governance in a Wednesday letter to Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson.

Loeb contends he would have been a better representative for Yahoo Inc. shareholders because he controls a 5.8 percent stake in the company through his fund, Third Point LLC. Loeb has spent about $1 billion buying the Sunnyvale, Calif., company's shares.

Yahoo said on Sunday that it appointed three other directors who haven't been investing in the company.

Loeb is challenging those selections with four alternative board candidates, including himself. Shareholders will choose which directors they want at Yahoo's annual meeting later this year.
