08:03 EDTYHOOStarboard urges Yahoo to sell core businesses
In a letter delivered to Yahoo's Chairman, CEO And board, Starboard stresses that a proposed spin-off of Aabaco Holdings is not Yahoo's best alternative. It adds that a sales of Yahoo's core business would be the best risk-adjusted outcome for shareholders. In the letter, Starboard stated, "We have grown increasingly frustrated with your unwillingness to accept our help and your dismissive approach to our serious concerns about the current situation at Yahoo! Inc. ("Yahoo"). As you, the management team, and your advisors requested from us over a year ago, we have attempted to work with you privately and agreed not to pursue the nomination and election of directors at last year's annual meeting. Despite our numerous conversations and meetings, and notwithstanding your willingness to provide us an audience, you have been reluctant to respond or adapt to the realities of the current environment. The current situation that Yahoo faces is so important that we now feel it is necessary to communicate with management and the Board of Directors in a manner such that our message is not only as explicit as possible for you, but also for our fellow Yahoo shareholders. The proposed spin-off of Aabaco Holdings is not Yahoo's best alternative. Instead, you should be exploring a sale of Yahoo's core Search and Display advertising businesses and leave Yahoo's ownership stakes in Alibaba Group and Yahoo Japan in the existing corporate entity."

Starboard supported the sale of over $20B in Alibaba shares before the IRS denied Yahoo's request for a private letter ruling on whether the spinoff would be considered tax free. Reference Link
