Yahoo to don new avtar 'Altaba', Marissa Mayer to step down from board post Verizon deal

US technology giant Yahoo Inc said on Monday that it would rename itself Altaba Inc post closing of its deal with Verizon Communications Inc. Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer would step down from the board after the closing of its deal with Verizon Communications Inc. 
Yahoo has a deal to sell its core internet business, which includes its digital advertising, email and media assets, to Verizon for USD 4.83 billion. 
The terms of that deal could be amended or the transaction may even be called off after Yahoo last year disclosed two separate data breaches; one involving some 500 million customer accounts and the second involving over a billion.
