Shareholders revolt


Motorola CEO Ed Zander is likely to be knifed in a shareholder revolt against his rule.

The campaign, which is backed by four other board members, is being led by a group of small investors who say that the company needs reform.

According to Associated Press, the campaign is also finding some support on Wall Street, with one analyst saying that Zander's days were numbered and the catcalls and the cries for him to step down, or be fired, were only going to grow.

Motorola's stunning decline started last year when aggressive attempts to increase market share by lowering phone prices backfired.

Now the company is expected to announce that its struggling mobile phone business will be unprofitable at least until 2008.
