Alibaba-Led Group Is Said to Be Preparing Offer for All of Yahoo [businessweek.com]

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and Softbank Corp. are in advanced talks with Blackstone Group LP and Bain Capital LLC about making a bid for all of Yahoo! Inc., said three people with knowledge of the matter.

A bid may value Yahoo at more than $20 a share because of tax savings tied to the Internet company’s stakes in Alibaba and Yahoo Japan, said two of the people, who declined to be identified because the discussions are private. Yahoo shares advanced 6.9 percent to $16.79 in extended trading.

Yahoo’s board is meeting to discuss offers it received for a minority stake in the Sunnyvale, California-based company from bidders including TPG Capital and a group led by Silver Lake, people familiar with the matter said this week. Silver Lake’s bid valued Yahoo at about $16.60 a share, these people said. TPG Capital’s offer was higher, they said.

Wonder how the back room negotiations are working... MS has a chunk of change in Yahoo and vise versa. Will be watching this one closely.
