08:27 EDTZNGANeedham sees little to be positive about in Zynga news
Needham thinks "very little" in Zynga's CEO transition can be construed positively. It notes the founder, who was replaced less than two years ago after a poorly executed IPO and subsequent revenue decline, is being brought back to replace a more recent CEO whose turnaround efforts it views as "having been incomplete at best." The firm suspended its rating on Zynga amid uncertainty over the company's fundamental prospects.

"Don joined us in a very important time in our evolution. I sincerely thank him for his leadership in better serving our players in a mobile first world and for delivering world class quality and value to our consumers," said Mark Pincus. "The team's hard work for our mobile players has resulted in bookings growing from 27% mobile bookings when Don joined to 60% by the end of last year. Further, to deliver unique and differentiated value to our mobile players, Don and the team acquired NaturalMotion. NaturalMotion has surprised and delighted the world with Clumsy Ninja and CSR Racing resulting in more than 160 million installs to date. I am inspired by our upcoming products – it is the most exciting slate of mobile games in Zynga's history with titles like Empires & Allies, Dawn of Titans and FarmVille: Harvest Swap. These games are coming on the heels of one of the most successful mobile launches in our history with Wizard of Oz Slots, which was launched this past November by our Spooky Cool team in Chicago." Pincus continued, "Now that we are a mobile first company, it's time to renew our focus on our founding mission to connect the world through games and our vision to make play and social games a mass market activity. I am returning to the company that I love in order to accelerate innovation in the most popular categories like Action Strategy and strengthen our focus on our core areas like Invest and Express. I look forward to partnering with our leaders to intensify our focus on social experiences for the millions of consumers who play our games." At his request, Pincus will receive an annual salary of $1 in connection with his appointment to CEO.

08:01 EDTHLFHerbalife announces one-year partnership with Global Health Strategies Institute
Herbalife announced a one-year partnership with Global Health Strategies Institute to help improve the nutrition of more than 10,000 children ages 5-12 in India, in line with the government’s Mid-Day Meal Scheme and School Health Programs. As part of its corporate social responsibility efforts, Herbalife will work with GHSI and global vitamin supplier DSM, to help provide access to good nutrition to children in India, a country with a history of malnourished, underweight children. The government-run MDMS and SHP programs are designed to improve the nutritional needs of children by providing food supplemented with adequate quantities of iron, folic acid and vitamin A. However, more fortified foods with essential micronutrients are needed. In the first phase of the project, GHSI will conduct a landscape analysis to help all parties understand the nutritional landscape, provide insights into the required nutritional support, the target beneficiaries, expected reach, implementation model and potential partners.
