The consortium led by Silver Lake and Microsoft (MSFT) bid ~$16.60/share for a minority stake in Yahoo (YHOO), sources say, somewhat lower than an offer made by TPG Capital. Still debating whether to get off the sidelines: Alibaba Group, KKR (KKR), THL and Blackstone (BX). (previously)

    I'm sure Yahoo share holders like this offer much better than the $31 per share MSFT offered a few years ago.

    I am CONFUSED. If YHOO owns 40% of Alibaba and Softbank, which at today's price is equal to roughly $25-30 billion, why is YHOO itself only worth $20 billion? Tax reasons? Yahoo US is worthless? I don't understand, please help.
