This was a pivitol week on the as everything was approved to go. Carl Icahn was given the green light to lobby and possibly win control to ready for a new Yahoo. The previous week, we saw all the reports of Carl Icahn making the statement: must go. This week was no different.

In the meantime, made one more offer. This time it wasn’t for the whole company – it was only for the . $35 a share for Yahoo Search. This was significant because this was the same bid Microsoft did back in February for the whole company.
