05:44 EDTT, YHOOSpringOwl calls for Yahoo, Viacom to seek partners, Reuters reports
SpringOwl Asset Management, which holds undisclosed stakes in Yahoo (YHOO) and Viacom (VIA), is urging the boards of both companies to seek investments from strategic partner, Reuters reports, citing an article that is set to be published today. SpringOwl managing director Eric Jackson says that "Although some shareholders of both Yahoo and Viacom think that a simple sale or break-up of both companies is the best way to create value for shareholders, we believe that both companies could benefit from their own version of the 'Buffett Convert,'" and that while stakes of investors would be diluted if an outside investor steps in, but "they would still be better off because their shares would likely get re-rated upwards substantially with this new partner sitting around the board table." Jackson believes Yahoo should seek outside investment from Liberty Media (LMCA), Verizon (VZ) or AT&T (T), while Viacom would benefit from Alibaba (BABA), Amazon (AMZN) or AMC Entertainment (AMC).
