In talks with Time Warner

 

Yahoo! seems to be looking for alternatives ever since Microsoft made a bid to buy the company. Yahoo! has been talking to Time Warner trying to thwart Microsoft’s bid.

Some sources say that if a deal goes down, Yahoo! might acquire Time Warner’s AOL, whereas Time would take a large minority stake in the combined company.

Yahoo! is also in talks with News Corp. discussing a possible deal where Yahoo! would acquire MySpace in exchange for a stake in the company.

Yahoo! rejected Microsoft’s bid, and the reason is that $31 a share price at the time of the bid is now worth $28.2 due to decline in Microsoft share prices and such prices undervalue Yahoo.
