Microsoft vows it will continue Yahoo! fight


12/02/2008

Microsoft vowed yesterday to pursue Yahoo! after the internet search engine formally rejected a $41 billion (£21 billion) approach by the software giant.

Microsoft said that it reserved the right to pursue all necessary steps to ensure that Yahoo! shareholders have a chance to gain from Microsoft`s interest, hinting that it may seek to oust the Yahoo! board by launching a proxy fight using its Yahoo! shares.

Microsoft did not say whether it would raise its bid.

Microsoft`s insistence that it is to chase Yahoo! came as it emerged that Google has become reluctant to act as a white knight for Yahoo!.

Google, the world`s biggest internet company, has gone cold on the idea of helping its online search rival to reject Microsoft`s advances, The Times has learnt.

Eric Schmidt, the chairman of Google, had called Jerry Yang, cofounder of Yahoo!, offering support as soon as Microsoft`s approach to its smaller rival was made public.

However, it is understood that Google has studied regulatory implications of a cooperation deal with Yahoo! and is reluctant to attract unnecessary attention from anticartel groups, particularly as it has been so vocal against Microsoft`s dominance elsewhere in the software market.

Google and Microsoft clashed after the internet group sought to buy DoubleClick, a deal that Microsoft has lobbied against at the European Commission, which has yet to approve the deal.

As part of Yahoo!`s statement of rejection yesterday, it promised to evaluate all of its strategic options.

However, some of those options are understood to be falling away. AOL the internet unit of Time Warner is thought to be less keen to restart old merger talks than is Yahoo!.

It is thought that Yahoo! is considering tieups with other media groups, such as Disney.

Yesterday, Wall Street traders indicated they expected Yahoo! to fall to a Microsoft offer as shares in the search engine closed at $29.87 in New York, up 67 cents and just shy of the $31 proposed by Microsoft.

On February 1, Microsoft made public its approach to Yahoo!, proposing to offer $31 per Yahoo! share, with up to half the sum payable in cash and the rest in Microsoft shares.

Yahoo! hired Goldman Sachs and Lehman Brothers, the Wall Street investment banks, to aid its defence against the approach.

Yahoo! has suffered eight consecutive quarters of falling profits and a declining share of the internet advertising market, estimated to be worth about $40 billion a year and expected to double within two years.

Yesterday, Yahoo! said that it had carefully reviewed Microsoft`s unsolicited proposal ... and has unanimously concluded that the proposal is not in the best interests of Yahoo! and our stockholders.

Yahoo! said it was rejecting the offer, which had valued its shares at a 62 per cent premium to their closing price the day before the offer was made public, because it substantially undervalues Yahoo! including our global brand, large worldwide audience, significant recent investments in advertising platforms and future growth prospects, free cash flow and earnings potential as well as our substantial unconsolidated investments.

Jordan Rohan, an RBC Capital Markets analyst, said that Yahoo!`s board would have little choice but to sell the company if Microsoft raised its bid to $35 or $36 a share.

Future is bright

What Jerry Yang told his Yahoos yesterday about why he had turned down Microsofts $31ashare offer

Yahoo! is one of the most admired brands in the world

Substantial operating cashflow, which we expect to grow in the double digits in 2009, gives us financial flexibility

Important investments in our core computing infrastructure that provide greater scalability

A goal to grow visits to Yahoo! by 15 per cent per year over the next several years
