About Altaba Inc.
Altaba Inc. (NASDAQ:AABA) is an independent, publicly traded, non-diversified, closed-end management investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940. The fund's assets primarily—but not entirely—comprise two investments: the first a substantial position in Alibaba Group Holding Limited, which has become one of the world's largest online retailers, and the second in Yahoo Japan Corporation, now a leading Japanese internet company.
Prior to June 16, 2017, Altaba was known as "Yahoo! Inc." Altaba was created from Yahoo! Inc. after the sale of its operating businesses, at which time Yahoo! Inc. reorganized as an investment company, was renamed Altaba Inc., and began trading under the Nasdaq ticker symbol AABA.
