Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam said in a statement:

The acquisition of Yahoo will put Verizon in a highly competitive position as a top global mobile media company, and help accelerate our revenue stream in digital advertising

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer said,

Today is a big day for Yahoo. For me personally, I’m planning to stay. I love Yahoo, and I believe in all of you. It’s important to me to see Yahoo into its next chapter

Verizon EVP and President of the Product Innovation and New Businesses organization Marni Walden is going to lead the process. Later Yahoo will be integrated with AOL. This deal makes the end of Yahoo 20 years of independence as a 2nd Internet company.
