reported power struggle with the CEO and founder Jon Tetzchner. The curtain fell on the
axed board members after they had reportedly tried to dislodge Tetzchner as CEO after
becoming impatient with the company's weak performance that resulted
in its share price nose-diving over 50% in the past year.
