Yahoo! ends! row! with! Alibaba! for! $6bn!

Yahoo! shareholders: No you are not dreaming

New hybrid storage solutions

Yahoo!, Alibaba and Softbank have signed a framework agreement to settle their long-running row over payment service Alipay.

Yahoo!, which owns a stake in Alibaba, had complained it was not consulted over the sale of the payment service. It complained the decision was taken without the knowledge or approval of the board.

The agreement signed today gives Yahoo! and Softbank a chance to benefit from any future flotation or sale of Alipay.

The minimum amount payable is $2bn and the maximum $6bn. If no sale has been achieved within 10 years, they can force a sale – provided Alipay is worth more than $1bn.

Given that Alibaba floated for $26bn IPO in 2007, this will be the best news Yahoo! shareholders have had for years.

You can get the whole agreement from Yahoo!'s investors page here. ®
