A recent report claims Yahoo! has received multiple offers for part or all of the company.
Although the report mentions Microsoft, Silver Lake and Andreesen Horowitz as interested bidders for the company, it also mentions Masayoshi Son of Softbank as a potential bidder, as well as Alibaba Group itself.
Now that we have multiple bidders prepare for a bidding war that could take months.
i wouldn't call it a bidding "war", more like an ebay auction where the listed price is so high but there's a make me an offer option
this company will be picked apart until there is nothing left - i think yang is trying to figure out a way to screw shareholders again which is why he needs months and not weeks
"It looks like things will heat up in the next week or two."
You mean "heat up" like turning RED? There are poor earnings just around the corner and no bidders on the horizon. The hype is starting to die down even as we speak.
And it will be the quietest bidding war in history. Nobody knows who's bidding and nobody knows how much, including the Yahoo! BOD and the "bidders" themselves. The shareholders don't know, the analysts don't know... even Chief Yahoo!'s head dress has slipped down over his eyes and he hasn't a clue where the bids are coming from or who is sitting in the room with him.
Kara has taken a page from fake-mb-coldie-alias's book and has proudly announced that the exodus of executive... uh... talent from Yahoo! is underway, having lost her list of the past 100 execs who have left in the past year or two.
The so-called potential buyers of Yahoo! have only one comment to make when they are asked how much they are going to bid for Yahoo!. "HUH???" is their collective response.
