Yelp YELP shares are down over 10% in Thursday afternoon trading. The reason? CEO Jeremy Stoppelman reportedly made the decision to hold on selling the review website.

Goldman Sachs, which was hired to find a buyer, has halted the process as a result of the founder and CEO, Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

But Yelp may bid for a sale once more depending on what Stoppelman, who founded the company, decides going forward. The company’s market cap is currently at $2.9 billion, with shares going for around $37.

A Yelp spokesperson declined to comment on the subject when asked by Bloomberg.

Stoppelman has already rejected offers from Google and Yahoo.
