Zynga Changes Controversial Stock Structure

Zynga (ZNGA) has simplified its stock structure by moving away from the contentious multi-class stock structure to a single-class structure, which has enabled Zynga founder, Mark Pincus, to convert all his high-voting shares into regular common shares that carry one vote per share. As a result, Pincus’s control in Zynga has significantly declined with his voting power dropping to about 10% from 70% previously.
