Yahoo's board will meet on Wednesday to discuss a wide range of options facing the troubled Internet firm, including the search for a new chief executive, a source with knowledge of the situation said.
Yahoo's board will meet in person at the company's Sunnyvale, California headquarters. The meeting is expected to last all day long and comes a week after Yahoo's board fired Chief Executive Carol Bartz, who had more than a year left on her 4 year contract.
Yahoo could not immediately be reached for comment by Reuters outside regular US business hours.
Allen & Co, which Yahoo has retained as it pursues a strategic review of its business, is expected to attend Thursday's meeting, the person said.
