    Realistic Valuation

    The following represents an effort to develop a reasonable $$ number relating
    to conservative (non-promotional) valuation for Yahoo ---realizable within next
    six months---Still, many risks--if something looks like a slam dunk in
    current volatile market environment--best to be extra cautious! In any event:

    Assume Alibaba valued at $180,000,000 on offering
    Yahoo receives approximately (after taxes) on 9% stake sold $12,000,000
    Retain approx. 14% in Alibaba --Alibaba goes to
    $200,000,000 shortly after offering--
    Yahoo's stake worth approx. $28,000,000

    Yahoo Japan (conservative) $ 6,000,000

    Core Yahoo $4,000,000

    Works out to approximately $50.00 per share

    Adjust downward to be even more conservative $48.00

    Assume this value develops over next six months

    Annualized rate of return from current $37.00----59%
