The suitors appear to be a number of private equity funds, including Silver Lake Partners. A consortium of Yahoo shareholders could also be interested in buying out the company, according to media reports. Others with an interest in Yahoo appear to be AT&T Inc, News Corp and Verizon Communications Inc.
Also, Andreessen Horowitz, who is working with Silver Lake and might include Russia’s DST and Yahoo’s Japanese partner Masa Son; former News Corp . exec Peter Chernin, who is reportedly partnered with Providence Equity Partners ; and the possibility that Yahoo’s Chinese partner, Alibaba Group, might attempt a sort of merger.
And best of all, This source – who asked to remain anonymous because getting fired sucks – says Yahoo is more attractive to Microsoft than AOL.
Sit back and wait for Yahoo's BOD to pick the highest bidder...
at this time the market is signalling that nothing will happen.there are no credible offers on the table in my opinion.show me the money,so far,just rumors and more rumors.if a deal or deals were eminent,yhoo would be going higher.
I hope Jack Ma and Masa Son buy Yahoo. It will be much less complicated since they want the Asian assets and have experience in running a site like Yahoo since Masa Son owns Yahoo Japan.
