Allegedly a true story from the old airport in Denver: a major airline had cancelled a very busy flight and a lone check-in agent is busy trying to sort out all the displaced passengers. A very angry and aggressive man barges his way to the front of the queue to confront her. He says says that he is flying first class and demands to go on the flight. The agent politely explains the situation and asks that people take their place in the queue. The man bellows at her, “Do you know who I am?” – at which the agent calmly picks up the microphone for the PA system, and announces to the airport, “This is (airline name) desk 64; we have a gentleman here who does not know who he is. If anyone can come and identify him please do so.” The man, now purple with rage, yells at her, “Well f**k you..” – to which the agent replies, “And you’ll have to stand in line for that as well, Sir…”

Boy, I am only on Row Man’s! The failed bid of Miss Venezuela Vanessa Goncalves is blamed not only on the Nicaragua question as a forgotten issue but also on the fact that Miss Goncalves is already LADY GAGA today! It’s better than “be dethroned” as Miss Universe for being a “man”! Her runner-up on the original pageant, Catalina Robayo of Columbia, went “on waves” by showing some clits while the pageant is going on!

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – The troubles at Yahoo Inc are proving to be a headache for AOL, that other deeply challenged Internet company trying to turn around its fortunes.

    Interest in AOL from private equity firms ramped up after the company’s stock plummeted about 30 percent on dismal earnings results last month. Allen & Co and Bank of America Securities are advising AOL on strategic alternatives, including a possible sale, sources said.

    Problem is, the private equity firms have now turned their attention to Yahoo, which is reportedly seeking its own sale after firing Chief Executive Carol Bartz on September 6 and attracting the ire of activist investor Daniel Loeb.

    AOL declined to comment for this story.

    Sources said the top-tier private equity firms that were looking at AOL are now setting their sights on the company famous for its purple logo and peppy exclamation point, viewing it as more valuable and housing more attractive assets than AOL.

    “Yahoo has jumped to the forefront,” said one industry source familiar with the situation.

    Indeed, according to this industry source and one other source, several PE firms have lines out to at least two media companies to see if they are willing to partner on a bid for all or pieces of Yahoo. Both sources declined to name the PE firms or media companies.

    AOL and Yahoo are two vastly different business in terms of market value — roughly $1.6 billion and $19 billion respectively — meaning that there are different pools of potential buyers for each asset. The big private equity firms with massive amounts of money under management are able to go after Yahoo on their own or with a strategic partner. The smaller private equity firms are better equipped to digest AOL and likely couldn’t pursue Yahoo absent being part of a consortia of buyers.

    Or, to put it another way, AOL’s second-class assets are now only attracting the interest of second-tier buyers.

    Indeed, only when compared to AOL does Yahoo come out the winner.

    “They are both in rough shape, but AOL has more structural challenges than Yahoo,” said Ross Sandler an analyst with RBC Capital Markets.

    Compounding AOL’s problems is the fact that its lucrative subscriber dial-up business is also one of greatest liabilities. Sandler said dial-up is partly responsible for a 25 percent year-on-year decline in AOL’s free cash flow.

    “At Yahoo you don’t have those issues,” he said.

    To make up for the loss of subscription revenue, AOL is training its sights on advertising sales. But even that is having set backs. Its launch last September of a more expensive large ad-format with interactive panels that dominate a Web called Project Devil is still trying to gain traction on Madison Avenue.

    Under Armstrong, AOL has also developed a penchant for investing in projects that have yet to pay out.

    Case in point: AOL has shoveled roughly $160 million into the network of more than 800 neighborhood-oriented websites dedicated to local news, many of which are less than a year old. Yet Patch is on track to lose $140 million to $150 million this year, estimates Sandler.

    Though expensive, at least AOL’s attention-grabbing acquisition of the Huffington Post for $315 million is delivering returns since the business is profitable.

    Yahoo’s coming on the block couldn’t have come at a worse time for Armstrong. The former Google Inc ad sales executive has seen his reputation dented since taking over AOL. According to one of the industry sources, Armstrong’ reputation has taken as much of a hit as Bartz’s, even before he bungled the dust-up that resulted in TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington’s ouster.

  • George Palaganas Yahoo’s Future to Dictate Morse’s Tenure
    By Vipal Monga

    This post originally appeared in the CFO Report blog of WSJ’s CFO Journal.

    Tim Morse’s tenure as “interim” CEO of Yahoo Inc. could be longer than expected, and depends largely on the direction taken by the embattled tech company’s board in the wake of its sudden firing of former CEO Carol Bartz on Tuesday night, said analysts. Clearly, his tenure could be just long enough for him to orchestrate the sale or breakup of the company, or it could turn out to be much longer if he’s allowed to navigate the company as an ongoing concern. Either way, his success as CFO of the company (a position he retains) made him the most obvious choice for the job, especially since the company hasn’t even begun the process of finding a new chief executive, and it’s unclear how many candidates would be willing to step in to take charge of the company given the uncertain position they’d be inheriting.

    Tim Morse, Yahoo’s chief financial officer, was named “interim” CEO yesterday.

    “If they’re going to restructure, they’ll leave Morse in place to see that process through,” said Jim Friedland, an analyst at Cowen and Company, who noted that the Internet company will have trouble finding a permanent replacement for Bartz in this case. “But if they want to grow the company, they’ll probably want a media or tech leader to come in,” he told CFO Journal.

    Morse, 42, became Yahoo’s CFO in July 2009, and has fixed the company’s cost structure. Yahoo’s net margins rose to 19.3% at the end of June 2011, from 8.8% at the end of calendar 2009. Colin Gillis, an analyst with BGC Partners, attributed the improved margins to layoffs and controlling expenses.

    “He basically gets an A for his performance [as CFO],” said Gillis. “He’s been one of the bright lights at the company.” Morse earned $2.9 million in total compensation in 2010.

    However, despite his success, the former CFO of semiconductor company Altera Corp. has probably been put in place to implement decisions made by board. In its announcement of Bartz’ firing, Yahoo said a new executive leadership council will support Morse “in managing the company’s day-to-day operations until a permanent chief executive is appointed.”

    The board will also perform a strategic review of the company.

    Steve Weinstein, an analyst at Pacific Crest Securities, said that the review and Morse’s interim appointment portend some sort of breakup of the company.

    “They put a financial guy in charge,” said Weinstein. “I think that indicates the direction they’re going.”

    He said that Yahoo is already looking at selling its stake in Yahoo Japan, but that it’s unclear how much the company will be able to get for the asset.

    A Yahoo spokesman didn’t return calls.
