Mayer's Vision for Yahoo

Stashed in: Google Acquisitions, @marissamayer

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

Acquisitions: Do not expect any billion-dollar deals. Ms. Mayer recalled the acquisitions she had a hand in at Google -- about 20 of them -- and said the ones that were most successful to date usually cost in the double-digit millions to low hundred millions. For that reason, Yahoo will look for "smaller-scale acquisitions." In talks with the startup and VC community, Ms. Mayer said there's a feeling that entrepreneurs are now "excited about potentially selling their company to Yahoo."

Low hundred millions is "smaller-scale"?

Everything is relative.

Beat me to it.

Took you guys awhile. :-)

And now we have Yahoo's first acquisition for a lot less than that.
