Look at how much Zynga shareholders dislike the CEO swap
Shares in social gaming company Zynga continue to sink Thursday after the company announced late Wednesday that cofounder Mark Pincus is rejoining the company as CEO.
The chart above shows the tremendous dip in the company’s stock in Thursday trading. It’s down about 14% to $2.45 on Thursday at the time of publishing, a far cry from the company’s stock price of over $14 per share in 2012.
Zynga was initially successful thanks to a lucrative strategy of making social games for Facebook’s desktop platform, going public in a 2011 IPO that raised $1 billion for the company. However, the company failed to successfully adapt as more Facebook users and people at large moved to mobile platforms like smartphones.
