12:13 EDTYHOOStarboard 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.
