Current Status: Reports suggest Yahoo has reached out to Google for help and is considering outsourcing search-monetization. This would likely drive several hundred million dollars (or more) to Yahoo’s bottom line. It might also buy time and relieve the pressure on Jerry and the Yahoo board.
rumours have also surfaced suggesting that a couple of private equity firms may act as white knights, and News Corp is also reportedly trying to put together a bid. We think these efforts have little chance of success and that Microsoft’s financial resources and determination will likely allow it to prevail.
