Verizon Buys Yahoo! What does it mean?
Verizon has announced that it will buy Yahoo!’s internet business for $4.83 billion dollars in cash. Yahoo, one of the oldest web companies, will now give up the business core that made it famous. Created by two students at Stanford University in January of 1994, Yahoo was a guide to help navigate the internet.
At Yahoo’s IPO, the stock was valued at $13. At the height of the dot-com bubble, it reached $118.75 per share. In 2008, Yahoo rejected an offer to be bought by Microsoft for 45 billion dollars in 2008. While Yahoo has not sold off its other businesses such as Alibaba and Yahoo Japan, it’s a significant loss for anyone who hoped to see Yahoo recover from its fall as an internet leader. The hope from shareholders is that by keeping Yahoo’s other businesses, it’s share price will increase, increasing its valuation.
