Some interesting questions about this deal are raised:

Questioning Yahoo Japan's Overture "Sale" [seekingalpha.com]

  • Why did Yahoo! do this deal in the first place?
  • Was Yahoo! at Risk of Losing the Paid Search Business for Yahoo! Japan?
  • Is there a difference between "transferring ownership of the sales operation of Overture Japan KK to Yahoo! Japan" and selling Overture Japan KK to Yahoo! Japan for US$13 million?
  • How does this deal in and of itself create more cash-flow for Yahoo! and Yahoo! Japan in the long-term?
  • How are Revenue and TAC calculated between Yahoo! and Yahoo! Japan?
