Banker bonanza! Yahoo spent $9 million on advisory fees in Q1.

A $9 million payoff for advisors.


As you can see from this chart, Yahoo spent $9 million in the first quarter on “advisory fees.” The Silicon Valley Internet giant reported earnings today that met lackluster expectations.

But bankers are doing great! As usual!

The last time the company spent nearly as much on these fees was a year ago, when Yahoo was doing a series of acquisitions and considering a variety of spinoffs. Then it was $8 million.

Bankers always get paid!
Bankers always get paid!
