Report: AOL/Yahoo combo to be called 'Oath,' get marketing push

|By:, SA News Editor

The Alibaba-heavy left-behind portion of Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) after it sells its core Internet business to Verizon (VZ +0.9%) is "Altaba," but what about the Verizon-bound part?

The combination of core Yahoo with AOL will be a company called "Oath," Business Insider says.

"In the summer of 2017, you can bet we will be launching one of the most disruptive brand companies in digital," a spokeswoman for AOL said.

The deal is set to close perhaps within three weeks, after which point they could seek an extension or even terminate the agreement.
