Yahoo will embrace another corporate character and decrease the extent of its board to almost half of its size if the proposed $4.8 billion offer of its ‘digital services’ to Verizon Communications experiences.

The organization has made up a plan to change its name to ‘Altaba Inc.’ after turning over its email, website, various apps, publicizing components to Verizon. The Chief Executive Officer, Marissa Mayer and five other executives from the board of Directors will leave the company after the closing of ‘planned sales’.

But, the Verizon deal has been imperiled by Yahoo’s late disclosure of two separate hacking assaults that stole individual data from more than 1 billion client accounts.

Maynard Webb Jr. was a director since February 2012, who was named Chairman in August 2013. Mr. Webb, as per the current news, became the director of emeritus.

Likewise, Jane Shaw, a previous pharmaceutical industry official who joined in 2014, and media official Eddy Hartenstein and Richard Hill, former CEO of Novellus Systems Inc., will be leaving the board.

Yahoo chief Eric Brandt turned into the organization’s chairman in place of Maynard Webb, who got to be the director of emeritus until the Verizon deal closed. Yahoo’s shares rose to $41.35 in recent trading and Verizon’s shares went down to 3 cents to $52.65 on Monday.
