Well let -- has agreed his agreed to buy back two thirds who have stakes -- higher paying over one point two billion to loved to exit. And on his back at them at market rates and last week you -- which it seems fair depending of course you know accurate actually to sell. Chunk of its stock again it take much lower priced right -- I think is it uses up most Yahoo!'s remaining. Buyback program they had about one point nine billion remaining in Iraq buying back one point two billion. So the words he's kind of jumping to the have a pile right and and the other problem is of course is that he had 33 directors.

So reached a -- -- say thank you very much yet I think love is is turning his sights on something like Sony.

How much has the company changed how much community tributes so the -- -- in -- -- such wolf part of the change has been real use it when Meyer came on about almost all the company's values tied up into Asian assets -- what we -- it -- and energy to get -- entered the got a plan for getting rid of the rest of -- That's that's a big change and they've gone ahead and they can't be -- Tumblr.
