Does Masayoshi Son want Yahoo! Japan more than Alibaba Group
Masayoshi Son wants Yahoo's share of Yahoo! Japan back as much as Jack Ma wants Yahoo's share of Alibaba Group back. Yahoo and Masayoshi Son are putting the finishing touches on a deal that will get Masayoshi Son exactly what he wants.
Masayoshi Son wants Yahoo out of Yahoo! Japan more than anything and Yahoo does not want out of Alibaba. A stock swap is the answer and my sources tell me that a stock swap will be announced no later than within one week with a good chance of it being today.
