Nikesh Arora, President and COO of SoftBank resigned soon after the Group on Monday announced that allegations made against its President by shareholder had turned out to be “without any merit.” Soon after his resignation, a series of tweets floated on his twitter handle. Here are few of his interesting and witty tweets:
“SoftBank Group Corp (SBG) announces the resignation of Nikesh Arora, Representative Director, President & COO, from the position of Representative Director and Director of SBG with the expiration of the term of office at the conclusion on of the 36th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders,” SoftBank said in a statement.
The meeting will be held on June 22.
“The difference of expected timelines between the two leads to Arora’s resignation from the position of representative Director and Director of SBG with the expiration of the term of office and his next steps,” the Japanese firm statement said.
Yesterday, SoftBank had said the allegations levelled by some shareholders against Arora, including those questioning his conduct and qualifications, have been found to be “without merit”.
Arora had joined SoftBank as its Vice-Chairman and CEO of SB Group US — previously SoftBank Internet and Media Inc — in September 2014 from search giant Google.
