Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang puts 2 million shares into blind trust

Jerry Yang, a co-founder of Yahoo and, until earlier this year, the company’s chief executive, placed 2 million of his Yahoo shares into a blind trust managed by a third-party “who will have complete discretion as to when, and to what extent, the stock is to be sold or otherwise disposed of.” The trust, set up April 29, is set to expire after one year, according to a regulatory filing Monday.

The blind trust’s holdings represent about 3.8 percent of Yang’s total holdings of Yahoo stock, based on the company’s most recent proxy.

Should the blind trust choose to sell some or all of Yang’s Yahoo stock, it would be the first sale Yahoo stock by Jerry Yang since 2005.
