SAN FRANCISCO - A major Yahoo Inc. shareholder has asked for a review of how its votes were cast in last week's reelection of the Internet company's board, raising questions about whether the opposition to the directors may have been understated.
Capital Research Global Investors, which owns a 6.2 percent stake in Yahoo, demanded the review yesterday, a spokesman said.
Capital Research wants independent vote counter Broadridge Financial Solutions to make sure the fund's votes were accurately transmitted. The spokesman declined to discuss how Capital Research intended to vote or what prompted the request.
Yahoo stood by the results certified by an independent inspector after its annual meeting.
