Search Alliance Costs and Reimbursements
Yahoo!’s results for the three months ended June 30, 2010 reflect $86 million in searchoperating cost reimbursements from Microsoft under our Search and AdvertisingServices and Sales Agreement (“Search Agreement”). This amount is equivalent to thesearch operating costs incurred by Yahoo! related to the Search Agreement in thesecond quarter. Search operating cost reimbursements are expected to continue untilYahoo! has fully transitioned to Microsoft’s search platform. Yahoo! views searchoperating cost reimbursements as an indicator of the long-term cost savings associatedwith full implementation of the Search Agreement. Our business outlook for totalexpenses reflects these savings as well as planned reinvestments.Yahoo!’s results for the three months ended June 30, 2010 also reflect transition costreimbursements from Microsoft under the Search Agreement, which were equivalent tothe transition costs of $18 million incurred by Yahoo! related to the Search Agreement inthe second quarter. Therefore, the net impact of the transition costs and reimbursementswere neutral to total operating expenses in the second quarter, as expected. In thefuture, quarterly transition cost reimbursements are expected to continue to be roughlyequivalent to quarterly transition costs.
