Overall, combined, they will serve fewer people than they do separately, many existing users won't like the new package and will try new sources. If Yahoo can cut enough of the overhead by laying off redundant staff, parting ways with former top execs and consolidating in general it might pay off. Otherwise this will help boost any company that was competing against BOTH Yahoo and AC.
Yahoo is now a bigger competitor BUT the overall competition has decreased, other companies will benefit most.
