Recently, a number of reporters witnessed, Yahoo CEO Mayer and AOL CEO Tim Armstrong at last week's Sun Valley summit after the late night in the bar. Re/code's Kara Swisher speculated that they had discussed the merger of two companies. AOL's shares rose 2% per cent on the previous trading day.
Aol&yahoo's idea of mergers and acquisitions is already an old wine, and in 2008 Yahoo will almost complete its acquisition of AOL. Later, two mergers were even considered part of Microsoft's takeover of Yahoo. If the three mergers were to come true, they would monopolize the US email service, so Google even considered bidding for AOL to disrupt the takeover. Google gained about 5% of AOL's shares in 06.
From the beginning of this year, Yahoo's acquisition of AOL News in one of the people's eyes, the upcoming Alibaba IPO in the huge cash Yahoo is not bad money.
Swisher that Yahoo CEO Mayer has been hinted at by Tim Armstrong that AOL can still be sold to Yahoo. But Mayer did not catch a cold, and her crazy "shopping" at the beginning of Yahoo was focused on mobile-end startups, such as Flickr and Tumblr. She feels AOL's current market capitalisation is too small and less than 3.3 billion dollars, a bid that is not encouraging. At this time, someone should remind her, Yahoo's market capitalisation deducted its holdings of Alibaba shares and cash flow, perhaps still negative!
