Yahoo to begin approaching buyers this week

Yahoo to begin approaching buyers this week
According to multiple reports, Yahoo will begin approaching potential buyers as early this week in an effort to sell off its core businesses.

There are a few companies supposedly interested, including Verizon, Comcast and AT&T, but there is a better chance of Yahoo selling to a private equity firm like Bain, KKR or TPG, say the sources.



CEO Marissa Mayer was hired to turnaround the company but so far all her acquisitions and efforts have fallen flat to the point where the company's stock shares are almost worthless after you take away their $25 billion stake in Alibaba.

    Ouch! Someone smack an editor, so they can turn around and smack the writer... >.<'

    I'm not usually overly picky about such things, as long as the message comes across clearly enough, but that headline is a real clunker.

    Andre is usually one of the most proficient writers on AD.. I can give him a pass on this one snafu.

    It's sad really. Yahoo! spearheaded much of the internet as it is today.

    They used to be my search engine of choice but that was few years ago. Now it's riddled with ADs, fluff and nonsense.

    If Yahoo! shut its doors........I don't think many would miss it except those with emails.

    I see it staying open as an email provider only.



    R.I.P. Yahoo!
