Report: Yahoo Looks to Merger Talks with AOL

By Reuters  |  Posted 02-11-2008 Print Email

Looking to avoid another bid from Microsoft, the troubled search firm restarts merger talks with struggling competitor. 

Yahoo is seeking to restart merger talks with AOL as a means of defending itself against an unsolicited bid approach from Microsoft, the Times newspaper said on Monday.

The paper, without citing sources, said Yahoo was also considering tie-ups with groups such as Google and Disney.

It said Yahoo and AOL had previously tried to join forces, but were unable to agree on the price of a deal.

None of the parties mentioned could immediately be reached for comment.
