12:50 EDTYHOOThird Point sends letter to Yahoo! board
Third Point LLC, owners of 5.8% of Yahoo! shares, sent the following letter today to the Yahoo! board of directors: " Yahoo!'s initial response yesterday to Third Point's identification of material inaccuracies in both CEO Scott Thompson's and Director Patti Hart's educational record was insulting to shareholders. We assume that these initial statements were attributable to Mr. Thompson and were not made with the Board's approval. While we appreciate the Board's statement late last night that it would conduct an investigation, unfortunately, for this Board and this Company, it is too little and months too late... Furthermore, Yahoo!'s response "confirming" that Ms. Hart "specialized" in Marketing and Economics, rather than having earned her degree in such subjects (as Ms. Hart has asserted in filings for years) is a similar canard. A "specialty" is not a major. It is not a "minor". We don't know what it is, but we do know that like Mr. Thompson, Ms. Hart has been misrepresenting her actual degree to the investing public for years. Again, we hope that the Board does not accept this feeble attempt at "spin" as a justification for Ms. Hart's misrepresentations... Third Point, Yahoo!'s largest outside shareholder with over $1 billion invested, called yesterday for an immediate investigation if our assertions were true. The Board appears to have acceded to this demand. Its response must be swift and decisive. Finally, we urge the Board to stop wasting valuable company resources and drop its resistance to placing the Third Point nominees on the Board. We are prepared to join immediately. Once on the Board, our first tasks will be to work with the remaining Board members to find Yahoo! a new leader with the qualifications and integrity to lead the Company and install best practices of corporate governance. The Company can ill afford to continue this misguided fight with its largest outside shareholder while it has so many other fires to put out. There has been enough damage already."

06:45 EDTYHOOYahoo to receive $8.8B in first tranche of Alibaba stake, says Cantor
Cantor Fitzgerald says that based on Alibaba's (BABA) updated F1 on Friday, Yahoo (YHOO) will receive $8.8B in the first tranche of its Alibaba stake. Cantor estimates that at the mid-point, Alibaba's proposed market cap is $158.3B, with Yahoo's stake valued at $33B. The firm notes this is below its $180B estimate. Cantor says Yahoo is only selling 140M shares in the first tranche, leaving 384M shares to be sold in a year-plus, likely at a higher valuation and on better tax terms. Cantor keeps a Buy rating on the stock.
