Verizon is one those companies that has always managed to sail the winds of time, growing ever stronger, and stronger enough to hold its own against the wind of change. Soon, and likely later today, Verizon will be announcing plans to buy Yahoo Inc.’s main assets for a massive $4.8 billion.
This move will surely seal the fate of the web pioneer after the long run of speculations and a lot of pressure being mounted on them by investors. This deal will also include the takeover of Yahoo’s real estate assets, and we expect that some intellectual properties will also be sold out, but these could go separately.
Yahoo’s proposed $4.8 billion worth could be going way higher than what Verizon bought AOL a year ago, but one thing Verizon stands to enjoy from this deal is the advertising and contents that Yahoo has to offer. This deal will likely include Yahoo’s Brightroll technology, and we feel that some elements from Maven’s products will also go into the deal.
