The exodus, for Zynga, continues. In addition to COO John Schappert and others, Allan Leinwant, Zynga's CTO of Infastructure and Jeff Karp — its chief marketing and revenue officer — have now left Zynga, following a difficult second quarter that has seen the company's stock plummet.
Many, not all of the above employees left Zynga following those poor second quarter results, reports Gamasutra. At the moment Zynga's stock is sitting $2.80, slightly above its all time low of 2.66, but miles below it's all time high of $15.91.
With Farmville 2 releasing this week, you'd perhaps expect to see the market respond positively, but it appears as though Zynga's stock is in a tough spot. Just last month Bloomberg reported that options were being handed out to employees in an attempt to stop them from leaving the company.
