12:15 EDTAOLStarboard believes Yahoo-AOL combination could offer synergies of up to $1B
In a letter to Yahoo, Starboard said, "Based on our analysis, we believe that a combination of Yahoo and AOL could offer synergies of up to $1 billion by significantly reducing the cost overlaps in their Display advertising businesses as well as synergies in corporate overhead. Importantly, we believe the combined entity would be able to more successfully navigate the ongoing industry changes, such as the growth of programmatic advertising and migration to mobile. In addition, we believe a combination could also lead to revenue growth opportunities given the broader user base, higher quality content, better technology assets, and enhanced relationships with advertising agencies. Interestingly, based on our research and the legal advice we have received on how to unlock the value of Yahoo's equity holdings, we believe a merger of AOL and Yahoo's core business may be one of the best ways to both fully seize the cost reduction opportunity and also to tax efficiently monetize Yahoo's non-core equity holdings. We trust the Board and management will do the right thing for shareholders, even if this may mean accepting AOL as the surviving entity in a combination, should that be the best and most tax efficient structure."

12:13 EDTAOLStarboard urges Yahoo to explore combination with AOL
Starboard Value LP announced it has acquired a significant ownership stake in Yahoo!, and that it has delivered a letter to Marissa Mayer, President and CEO of Yahoo, and to Yahoo's Board of Directors. In the letter, Starboard said, "The purpose of this letter is to highlight several opportunities to unlock tremendous value for the benefit of all Yahoo shareholders. These opportunities include: 1) Unlocking the substantial value from Yahoo's non-core minority equity stakes in Alibaba (BABA) and Yahoo Japan in a structure that delivers value directly to Yahoo shareholders in a tax-efficient manner; 2) Realizing substantial cost efficiencies by reducing expenses throughout the Company, specifically with a goal of reducing losses in the Display business by between $250M-$500M; 3) Halting Yahoo's aggressive acquisition strategy which has resulted in $1.3 billion of capital spent since Q2 2012 while consolidated revenues have remained stagnant and EBITDA has materially decreased; and 4) Exploring a strategic combination with AOL (AOL) – a company we know well – which could improve Yahoo's competitive position, deliver cost synergies of up to $1B, and potentially facilitate the realization of value from Yahoo's non-core equity stakes with minimal tax leakage. We believe that the execution of these initiatives would produce tremendous value for shareholders, and are squarely within the control of the Company's management and board of directors. We look forward to engaging directly with you to discuss the details of how these actions can be implemented in a timely manner.
