  • Verizon's $4.83 billion cash acquisition of internet giant Yahoo will make the telecommunications company one of the biggest owners of web content and advertising assets in the world. The companies confirmed the deal on July 25, saying that they expect the deal to close in early 2017. Upon closing, the newly acquired Yahoo properties are expected to be combined with another Verizon property, AOL, which itself was one of the original giants of the internet's early days. It wasn't long ago that Yahoo, founded in 1994, was one of the web's most popular search engines, a major advertising platform and the default home page for millions of internet users around the world. Yahoo, which once received an unsolicited offer from Microsoft for $44.6 billion, is now a shadow of its former self that sold for less than $5 billion today. Looking ahead, Verizon will have to see what it can do to get the most value out of its Yahoo assets by retaining as many of its diminished following of users and look to the future in hopes of remaining relevant. This slide show discusses what Verizon and Yahoo shareholders are getting from the deal and how it will affect users, some of whom have been loyal Yahoo users for 20 years.
