11:06 EDTYHOO, GOOGYahoo slides after COO removed, clash with CEO speculated
Shares of Internet search, mobile app, and content company Yahoo! (YHOO) are lower after the company revealed that Chief Operating Officer Henrique de Castro was removed from his post. Sources say he was fired due to clashing with Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer, according to media reports. WHAT'S NEW: De Castro, who was originally recruited by Mayer from Google (GOOG), was removed from the company effective January 16, noted last night in a regulatory filing by Yahoo. The Wall Street Journal reported that Mayer and de Castro repeatedly clashed, quoting a source as saying that Mayer decided de Castro needed to leave after continued pressure from investors to deliver advertising growth. Reuters reported that the news broke to Yahoo employees in a company-wide memo from Mayer that reportedly read, "During my own reflection, I have made the difficult decision that our COO, Henrique de Castro, should leave the company." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Dissension seemed to have started early in 2013 when Business Insider reported on April 4 that Mayer was skeptical about a deal with Dailymotion that de Castro was pushing for. On September 3, Adweek reported, via sources, that de Castro was feeling "increased pressure" to deliver better ad results and was said to have found himself on the outs with Mayer. PRICE ACTION: During mid-morning trading, shares of Yahoo are down 2% to $40.23.
