News Summary: Yahoo to buy 40M shares from Loeb

(AP) - RESIGNATIONS: Dan Loeb and two other directors nominated by hedge fund Third Point are leaving Yahoo Inc.'s board as the company's stock has posted big gains over the past year.

BUYBACK: Yahoo is also repurchasing 40 million shares from Third Point for $1.16 billion. The company will pay $29.11 per share, matching Yahoo's Friday closing price. This cuts Loeb's stake in Yahoo from 5.8 percent to less than 2 percent.

BOARD: Yahoo's board will have seven directors once Loeb, Harry Wilson and Michael Wolf depart. Yahoo said the remaining directors will take a look at the board's size and composition.
