UPDATE on bids: Yahoo shortlist has Verizon, YP, Rakuten, private equity- sources | Reuters

Yahoo’s Troubles Mount, and Revenue Shrinks, as It Vets Suitors - The New York Times"Jeffrey Smith, the chief executive of the Starboard Value hedge fund, said on Tuesday that he intended to keep the pressure on Yahoo. Starboard has proposed an alternative slate of nine directors to replace Yahoo’s entire board at the company’s next annual shareholder meeting, expected in June or July."

Monday, April 18, was the bid deadline for Yahoo's assets. According to Seeking Alpha, Verizon (NYSE:VZ) is the lead bidder for Yahoo. Yahoo did amend the CEO's change-of-control compensation--at least $48 million of Marissa Mayer's equity would vest in a deal--and the company is working with Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Evercore (NYSE:EVR) to defend against activist investor, Starboard Value. Yahoo is working with JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) to at least go through the motions of auctioning the company off. We may know more after the earnings webcast.
