TechCrunch 的 Michael Arrington 写道 Yahoo! 正在召开一次特殊的董事会主管会议来决定公司的命运（”to determine, effectively, the fate of the company”）。根据 Arrington 的文章:
There are only two options left. Accept the offer in principal, and try to increase the price with no negotiating leverage at all, or do a deal with Google to outsource search advertising and, likely, search itself.
The board, we’ve heard, is basically being told by outside advisors to take the Microsoft deal. But we’ve also heard that a contingent of senior executives at Yahoo, who are willing to do literally anything to thwart a Microsoft takeover, are pushing for the Google deal and will present their case at the meeting.
Yahoo! 目前只有两种选择。尽管有许多外部的人支持 Yahoo! 接受微软的收购，但我们也听说 Yahoo! 内部的高级执行官员们极力反对微软的收购，并且正在向 Google 靠拢。
