Yahoo's financial situation is "increasingly dire" according to Kara Swisher in Re/code, who obtained access to the "book" Yahoo's bankers are making available to potential buyers. According to Swisher, the book "shows a company in what appears to be serious free fall," and shows Yahoo expecting revenue to fall close to 15 percent, earnings by over 20 percent, in 2016.

"Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's tenure has been a mess and the Board of Directors should be held accountable for the losing of a significant sum of shareholder value based solely on the company's inability to find and execute a strategic vision that is going to move them in one direction or another."--Yahoo: Nothing Is Finalized Just Yet | Seeking Alpha
