Letter to Yahoo Stockholders from Mr. Yang

We have no choice but to accept Microsoft's offer. I don't want our company to be involved in a proxy war which will just end up Microsoft winning it by a mile. I have suggested to name the company Yahoo by Microsoft so as not to lose our identity and brand. Either way, if they insist on putting their name together with Yahoo then I am not considering MicroWho? because it is a kitchen appliance like a Microhood. I like the idea of naming it Yahoo by Microsoft or YAHMIC! This way, our brand Yahoo will always come first.

This will be a great company and we are moving quickly to make it come true.

Billy Yang,

YahMic! Inc.

Personally, any company who may acquire Yahoo is ok, BUT not AOL!!! If AOL buys it, I will cancel all my yahoo mail accounts, because AOL as everybody knows, is crap!! MS offer is very fair.

Good luck MS!!
