Yahoo may be compelled to consider M&A if management cannot turn things around - research report

Yahoo could face an M&A scenario if its management is unable to turn things around in a way that boosts the company's stock price, noted a research report.
UBS analysts Benjamin A. Schachter and Daniel Silver said in a 7 December UBS Investment Research report that Yahoo, which recently announced a restructuring effort, will either need to see its management team fix up what ails the listed California-based Internet company and boost its share value, or change the management team and/or engage in some sort of M&A deal to increase shareholder value. A report carried on this news service earlier today suggested that Microsoft, the listed Washington-based software giant, could be interested in buying Yahoo, which has a market cap of USD 36.22bn.
