    Verizon to pay $4.8 billion for Yahoo’s core business

    New York Times

    Verizon, the USD 203 billion telecommunications company, has agreed to by New York-based web services company AOL in a deal valued at $4.4 billion or $50 per share. This has sent AOL's share price up by more than 18% on very high volume (27 times the normal volume.)
