(NASDAQ:YHOO) and continues to be a contender to acquire the Sunnyvale, CA-based company’s core internet business, according to sources cited by Bloomberg.
Formerly, the Dallas-based telecommunications giant had decided not to make an offer, sources said in April.
AT&T remained in the process via its stake in digital advertising company YP Holdings, which had projected a merger with a partner spun out of Yahoo’s core business, Bloomberg noted.
But YP is no longer pursuing such a deal, one of the sources said.
Verizon Communications (VZ) has long been the frontrunner to buy the Internet giant.
Yahoo! Inc., together with its auxiliaries, provides search and display advertising services on Yahoo properties and associate sites worldwide.
