Yahoo now has a real battle on its hands

Having beaten off Microsoft Jerry Yang of Yahoo has gotten an even tougher battle on his hands....

Carl C. Icahn, the billionaire investor and activist shareholder, has decided to move ahead with plans for a proxy fight at Yahoo and will propose a dissident slate of directors (NY Times)

We bet Jerry is wishing he had taken Bill's multi $bn offer. Mr Icahn is as someone put a pain in the arse investor! He makes Microsoft look attractive!

Bon chance Jerry
