    Facebook drops stock split, Zuckerberg credits stock's rise

    Facebook Inc. will not execute a stock split that creates a non-voting class of shares after facing an investor lawsuit, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg announced Friday afternoon. Zuckerberg wanted the stock split to ensure he remained in control of Facebook even while donating a massive amount of his stock to an LLC he and his wife Priscilla created to support philanthropic causes. In his announcement on Facebook, Zuckerberg said the increase in Facebook's stock price allows him to avoid creating a non-voting class of stock. "Over the past year and a half, Facebook's business has performed well and the value of our stock has grown to the point that I can fully fund our philanthropy and retain voting control of Facebook for 20 years or more," Zuckerberg wrote. "As a result, I've asked our board to withdraw the proposal to reclassify our stock -- and the board has agreed." Facebook stock has increased 48.2% in 2017, pushing its market capitalization to near $500 billion, while the S&P 500 index has gained 11.7% in that time. Zuckerberg was set to testify next week in a Delaware court where investors were fighting the split, but that session was suddenly canceled Friday, amid rumors of a settlement between Facebook and investors.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Early Uber investor sues former CEO Travis Kalanick, who says suit is 'riddled with lies'

    Benchmark Capital Partners, an investor in Uber Technologies Inc., has sued Uber's former chief executive Travis Kalanick for breach of duty. The complaint, which was filed Thursday in the Delaware Chancery Court, centers on the fact that Kalanick was able to name three new voting directors to Uber's board in 2016, expanding the number of voting directors from eight to 11. Kalanick took one of those seats after his resignation, but the other two have yet to be filled. When approving the expanded number of seats, Benchmark said Kalanick concealed "gross mismanagement," including company harassment issues as well as the acquisition of self-driving truck startup, Otto, which is now at the center of a lawsuit with Alphabet Inc. . Benchmark said it would not have approved the three seats, had it known about these issues, and that Kalanick used the seats to gain power knowing that he could be removed. Kalanick recently resigned from Uber, but has reportedly been trying to come back to the company. "Kalanick's overarching objective is to pack Uber's board with loyal allies in an effort to insulate his prior conduct from scrutiny and clear the path for his eventual return as CEO," the complaint says. Benchmark is asking for an invalidation of that stockholder vote, which would get rid of those three seats and also remove Kalanick from the board. Before that, it is asking the court for preliminary injunction against Kalanick participating, voting or having a say in board matters. A spokesperson for Travis Kalanick said the claims were baseless and Kalanick will continue to act in the interests of Uber and its stakeholders. "The lawsuit is completely without merit and riddled with lies and false allegations," the spokesperson said in an emailed statement to MarketWatch. "Benchmark's lawsuit is a transparent attempt to deprive Travis Kalanick of his rights as a founder and shareholder and to silence his voice regarding the management of the company he helped create."Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Snap shares end session down 1% despite lockup expiration

    Shares of Snap Inc. ended the session down just 1% from Friday's close, despite a lockup expiration. Though shares reached a record intraday low of $13.10 Monday, they rallied back to close at $13.68. Analysts had been concerned that insiders and investors would sell their shares Monday, as they looked for liquidity and as Snap has had a bumpy path since its IPO. Analysts estimated close to one billion shares could be available to sell. Still, investors were well aware of the lockup and CFRA Research said Monday that they believed close to half of the shares were held by executive officers and directors who were unlikely to sell. But other shares could still be sold. Shares of Snap have fallen 23% in the past month, while the S&P 500 has gained 2%.
