We reported on the Business Blog recently that Internet business Yahoo is going through a significant phase of retrenchment as it struggles to compete with the likes of Google and Facebook.

This video from the Wall Street Journal is a really useful resource if you'd like to use the Yahoo example as context for teaching mergers and takeovers.

Yahoo increasingly looks like a takeover target.

But. who might buy it? What would the strategic logic be? For whom would Yahoo make a good strategic fit, assuming they can afford the $3-4bn price tag?

Takeover "matchmaking" is always a useful thinking-skills activity. It's what investment bankers do all day long in an attempt to justify their fat fees!
