News Corp. and Time Inc. Interested in Yahoo

Everyone hates Yahoo until it's time to buy Yahoo.

If Yahoo is indeed selling, the company won’t have trouble finding buyers.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Verizon and IAC are both interested in purchasing the company outright, while News Corp. and Time Inc. would like to scoop up various Yahoo brands.

Yesterday word spread that Yahoo’s board was meeting to discuss several options, including spinning off its Alibaba investment, selling Yahoo’s many internet brands, or doing both.

Another party, private-equity firm TPG Capital, has also expressed interest in buying Yahoo brands.
