Yarro to Stay on the SCO Board or Not?
Monday, March 07 2005 @ 12:30 AM EST

There is a not-to-be-missed interview with Darl McBride in Business Week, in which he is asked about whether Ralph Yarro will stay on the board at SCO or not. It sounds to me like the answering is a resounding, It depends. On what? On the March 8 hearings in the Canopy litigation. See what you make of this exchange:

Q: Do you want him to stay on the board?
A: Ralph has been a great board member. He's been very supportive and valuable in terms of the input he has provided.

Q: What has he helped you do?
A: Ralph has a great entrepreneurial mind. He's been good on intellectual property and legal battles. I wouldn't call him the architect of our legal strategy, but he clearly has added value. How that's all going to play out, I don't know.

Q: Are you concerned about his ability to serve?
A: We had a board meeting last week. The company needs to get some clarity about the situation. It's important to figure out who represents the Canopy shares. As long as the cloud is there regarding the Canopy situation we want to remove the cloud.

Q: Will he stay on the board?
A: No one on the SCO board has asked him to step down. He will continue to serve.

Q: Has the new Canopy management team made any requests yet of SCO?
A: We have had some discussions. I spoke with [new Canopy CEO] Bill Mustard. After the Mar. 8 hearing, I would be glad to provide details. We value them as our largest shareholder.

I gather SCO will wait to see if the cloud over Yarro is removed or not. There is plenty more in the interview, so hop on over and take a look.
