ABSTRACT
The article deals with the anticipation for the first-quarter 2008 financial report of Yahoo in line with Microsoft's proposed takeover of the Internet company. Yahoo is expected to report a net income of $150 million, or $0.09 per share, on $1.32 billion in revenue, according to a survey of analysts by Thomson Financial. Yahoo's financial report comes just days ahead of Microsoft's April 26, 2008 deadline to forge a deal with the Internet search company. The next step could be a drawn out proxy battle.
