Another Takeover Attempt on Yahoo

Posted by in Industry News

TechCrunch has reported on yet another attempt on Yahoo is in the works – this time by a group of Silicon Valley executives that would be funded largely by Microsoft’s money anyhow.

Under the terms of the proposed deal, the investment group would make a takeover bid for Yahoo at a relatively low premium of around 20% to its current price of around $13 per share, valuing the company at just over $20 billion.

A complicated financial structure would be put in place to finance the deal, but the bulk of the cash for the transaction would come from Microsoft as debt.

Some more info on the complexities of the deal can be found on the TechCrunch article.
