Yahoo (YHOO) is working on two "significant" acquisitions to go with 6 small "acqui-hires," says HR/M&A chief Jackie Reses. Thus far, all of Yahoo's acquisitions (I, II, III) in the Marissa Mayer era have been of the latter variety, though Reuters reported last October the company has at least mulled some bigger purchases. Kara Swisher observes Yahoo's improved reputation in the tech world could help it out. One startup exec: "They are no longer complete losers, although Facebook and Google and Apple and Amazon are still cooler."

  • The Kara lady must really dislike MM and Yahoo as well, she is so surly in her writings.

  • I wonder if when they say larger deals they're hinting at really well known names in different business, like NFLX or AKAM.
