    1. Time is Running Out for Yahoo's Board

      Beginning today and continuing through March 26th, shareholders of Yahoo will be able to submit their slate of candidates for the company’s board of directors.  Although Yahoo hopes to avoid a proxy contest at its Annual Meeting this summer, such a contest may be inevitable if a sale of the internet giant hasn’t occurred by then. 

      Following AOL’s sale to Verizon last June, Yahoo’s shareholders, led by activist investor Starboard Value, began to encourage a similar path for the company.  Yahoo’s board, realizing that the anticipated revival was not going to happen, finally relented ...

    5. Should Viacom's Board Follow Redstone's Resignation?

      I'm curious about what the Members of BoardProspects think about the current situation at Viacom.  Now that Redstone has finally stepped-down as Chairman, should the rest of the board follow suit -- or at least the faction that was his voting block?  Take a look at my quote on the issue in this morning's L.A. Times:

    6. Twitter is Struggling -- Is It the Board or Dorsey?

      Twitter's stock has been in a nose-dive and now top executives are leaving the company.  Twitter is expected to name 2 new board members very soon. Do you think it is a board problem or a "Dorsey Problem"?  I believe both Dorsey and the board are at fault.  It was a mistake to bring back Dorsey and to allopw him to run 2 companies (Square and Twitter) at the same time.  It is a failed experiment.  What do you think?

    7. Reaction to Wall Street Journal Article on "Close Ties in the Boardroom"

      On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal had a front page article discussing the pervasive problem of close ties on corporate boards (between board members and the executives they oversee).  This is certainly a major concern in terms of corporate governance, but I'm curious as to whether our Members believe this is a problem which will always endure regardless of continued efforts to break up the "old boys club".  Thoughts?
