Yahoo To Change Name To Altaba Soon



There are certainties that Yahoo Inc is planning to rename itself Altaba Inc and its Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer would step down from the board after the closing of its deal with Verizon Communications Inc.

According to Rueter, Yahoo has a deal to sell its core internet business, which includes its digital advertising, email and media assets, to Verizon for USD4.83 billion.

The terms of that deal could be amended – or the transaction may even be called off – after Yahoo last year disclosed two separate data breaches; one involving some 500 million customer accounts and the second involving over a billion.

Verizon executives have said that while they see a strong strategic fit with Yahoo, they are still investigating the data breaches. Five other Yahoo directors would also resign after the deal closes, Yahoo said in a regulatory filing on Monday.
