Altaba Announces Liquidating Distribution of $0.96 Per Share (2/09/23)

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Altaba Inc. (“Altaba” or the “Fund”) today announced that the Board approved a liquidating distribution of $0.96 per share of the Fund’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, or $498,730,911 in the aggregate (the “Liquidating Distribution”), which will be payable on February 17, 2023.

As previously announced, at a special meeting of stockholders held on June 27, 2019, stockholders of the Fund approved a Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution (the “Plan”), pursuant to which, the Fund filed a certificate of dissolution with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to dissolve the Fund on October 4, 2019.

On May 28, 2020, as part of the Fund’s court-supervised wind-up proceedings pursuant to Sections 280 and 281(a) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) pending before the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (the “Chancery Court”), the Fund filed a verified petition for determinations pursuant to Section 280 of the DGCL (the “Chancery Action”).

On January 20, 2023, Altaba and Emily Larocque filed, and the Chancery Court granted, a stipulated order setting the final holdback for the putative class action claim asserted by Emily Larocque in Saskatchewan, Canada, arising from the security incidents that took place between 2013 and 2016, which involved stolen Yahoo! user account information and forged cookies (the “Larocque Action”), and authorizing the Fund to make one or more distributions totaling in the aggregate amount of $492,500,000, reflecting the difference between the Fund’s current holdback for the Larocque Action and the stipulated holdback.

The Liquidating Distribution represents a partial distribution of the remaining assets of the Fund. Further information regarding the amount and timing of any subsequent liquidating distributions to stockholders will be provided in subsequent press releases or filings with the SEC as such information becomes available.

Altaba Announces Liquidating Distribution of $0.68 Per Share (1/05/23)

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Altaba Inc. (“Altaba” or the “Fund”) today announced that on Thursday, January 5, 2023, the Board approved a liquidating distribution of $0.68 per share of the Fund’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, or $353,267,728 in the aggregate (the “Liquidating Distribution”), which will be payable on January 13, 2023.

As previously announced, at a special meeting of stockholders held on June 27, 2019, stockholders of the Fund approved a Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution (the “Plan”), pursuant to which, the Fund filed a certificate of dissolution with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to dissolve the Fund on October 4, 2019.

On May 28, 2020, as part of the Fund’s court-supervised wind-up proceedings pursuant to Sections 280 and 281(a) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) pending before the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (the “Chancery Court”), the Fund filed a verified petition for determinations pursuant to Section 280 of the DGCL (the “Chancery Action”).

On June 18, 2020, the United States Department of Justice (the “DOJ”), on behalf of the United States Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”), filed a Notice of Removal in the Chancery Court removing claims of the IRS in the Chancery Action to the United States District Court for the District of Delaware (the “District of Delaware”). The Fund, together with the DOJ, filed with the District of Delaware a Joint Motion Regarding Claims Raised by Claimant the Internal Revenue Service, following which the District of Delaware entered an order on October 26, 2020 (the “Order”) establishing a separate account in the Fund’s name with the purpose of holding an agreed upon amount as security for the claims asserted by the IRS (the “Agreed Security Amount”).

During the second quarter of 2022, the IRS approved a reduction to the Agreed Security Amount of approximately $11 million that allowed the Fund to make a distribution of such amount after October 2022.

The Liquidating Distribution represents a partial distribution of the remaining assets of the Fund. Further information regarding the amount and timing of any subsequent liquidating distributions to stockholders will be provided in subsequent press releases or filings with the SEC as such information becomes available.

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Altaba Inc. (“Altaba” or the “Fund”) today announced that on Wednesday, July 20, 2022, after the close of business, the Board approved a liquidating distribution of $1.43 per share of the Fund’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, or $742,901,253 in the aggregate (the “Liquidating Distribution”), which will be payable on July 29, 2022.

As previously announced, at a special meeting of stockholders held on June 27, 2019, stockholders of the Fund approved a Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution (the “Plan”), pursuant to which, the Fund filed a certificate of dissolution with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to dissolve the Fund on October 4, 2019.

On May 28, 2020, as part of the Fund’s court-supervised wind-up proceedings pursuant to Sections 280 and 281(a) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) pending before the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (the “Chancery Court”), the Fund filed a verified petition for determinations pursuant to Section 280 of the DGCL (the “Chancery Action”).

(the “Requested Droplets Holdback Order”) that requested entry of an order authorizing the Company to make a cash distribution to stockholders in the amount of $360,391,527, which is the amount by which the revised monetary holdback amounts for the claims asserted by Droplets, Inc. (“Droplets”), as agreed by Droplets, exceeds the total required to be reserved for such claims in the Chancery Court’s May 17, 2022 grant of Altaba’s Unopposed Motion for Certain Distributions to Stockholders. On June 23, 2022, the Chancery Court entered the Requested Droplets Holdback Order.

The Fund filed with the Chancery Court a Motion for Partial Final Judgment on July 15, 2021, and subsequently revised such motion on July 19, 2021, following which the Chancery Court entered an order (the “Partial Final Order”) authorizing the Fund to make a cash distribution of all of the Fund’s assets in excess of the aggregate security amount required to be retained by the Fund pending adjudication of the amount of security reasonably likely to provide sufficient compensation for any claims that remain in dispute. The Board declared the Liquidating Distribution following the Chancery Court’s entry of the Partial Final Order.

Further information regarding the amount and timing of any subsequent liquidating distributions to stockholders will be provided in subsequent press releases or filings with the SEC as such information becomes available.

Altaba Expected to Make Another Big Shareholder Payout Under Its Liquidation Plan (2/10/21)

By Andrew Bary

Altaba has made two significant distributions to its shareholders under its liquidation plan. Now, the company, formerly Yahoo!, is expected to ask a Delaware court for authority to make another sizable payment at a hearing scheduled for April 20 to 22.

Shares of Altaba—technically liquidating escrow receipts—have traded this year around $14.50 in institutional markets. The company recently filed its annual report, disclosing a year-end 2020 net asset value of $15.50 a share

It ended 2020 with net assets of just over $8 billion, largely cash and short-term marketable securities. There are about 519.5 million shares outstanding.

Altaba shares were delisted from the Nasdaq market after the company adopted a liquidation plan in 2019 and distributed $51.50 a share to holders in September 2019. Another distribution of $8.33 a share was made in November 2020.

There has been no quoted market in Altaba shares since the delisting in October 2019. That has frustrated many individual investors, who were left with illiquid securities and no price on their Altaba holding, until many brokerage firms began putting a value on the security in monthly statements last year. Altaba has no ticker symbol. The 2020 annual report contains no comments from CEO Tom McInerney. The company has kept a low profile since the delisting of its shares in 2019

Roy Behren, the co-manager of the Merger Fund (ticker: MERFX), tells Barron’s in an email that he expects the Delaware court will approve a final liquidation plan in April that should spell out the reserves that Altaba needs to hold back against disputed financial claims. He sees a distribution of $7 to $9 a share in May, with “the remainder wrapped up by late 2022.”

The interim payment that Behren expects in May will likely be followed with one or more subsequent payments as Altaba winds down and distributes its remaining cash to holders as it resolves financial claims.

Altaba is one of the larger holdings of the $3.8 billion Merger Fund, which focuses on risk arbitrage and special situations.

Altaba trades at a small discount to its NAV to account for uncertainty about the timing and size of future payments to shareholders and the risk that it may have to pay out sizable claims to creditors. Wall Street, however, doesn’t expect any significant financial payments to creditors. That is reflected in Altaba shares, which trade close to the company’s net asset value.

The continuing wind-down of Altaba is part of a complicated story that began when Yahoo! sold its core online business to Verizon Communications (VZ) in June 2017 and changed its name to Altaba, a reference to what was then its largest asset, a valuable 15% holding in Alibaba Group Holding (BABA), the Chinese e-commerce giant.

Altaba, a closed-end fund, then went about liquidating the Alibaba stake as well as a smaller interest in Yahoo Japan (YAHOY). Altaba is the largest company ever to liquidate and distribute proceeds from its assets to its shareholders.

Barron’s has written about the Altaba liquidation situation, including an article in May 2020.

So what remains for Altaba to address before it can make final payments to its holders? The most important is an audit of its tax returns by the Internal Revenue Service.

Altaba and the IRS have agreed that Altaba would hold back about $1.7 billion for potential tax liability “subject to agreed upon mechanisms for the release of this security as portions of the IRS claims are resolved over time,” according to the annual report.

As part of its review, the IRS has proposed an additional tax liability of about $100 million, which Altaba disputes, according to the annual report.

Altaba has liabilities of $223 million on its balance sheet for deferred and other tax liabilities.

A few others have proposed that Altaba establish large reserves against disputed claims. These include Verizon and litigants related to the Yahoo! data breach from 2013 to 2016 and another related to a patent issue.

Altaba is expected to argue that the Verizon request for a $3 billion-plus reserve is unnecessary because it involves tax issues that Altaba is already addressing directly with the IRS.

There have been no claims made against Altaba by Chinese tax authorities, and the court deadline for claims submission has passed. There had been some concern in 2019 and 2020 among investors that China might seek tax payments related to Altaba’s sales of Alibaba stock.

The Altaba liquidation has gone smoothly so far, and investors are expecting that it will conclude without any major hitches.

Altaba Announces Liquidating Distribution of $8.33 Per Share (10/26/20)

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Altaba Inc. (“Altaba” or the “Fund”) today announced that on October 23, 2020 the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Fund approved a liquidating distribution of $8.33 per share of the Fund’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share, or $4,327,529,678.78 in the aggregate (the “Liquidating Distribution”), which will be paid on November 2, 2020 to stockholders of record as of the October 4, 2019 date of dissolution of the Fund (or, as applicable, their permitted transferees by bequest, intestacy or operation of law).

As previously announced, at a special meeting of stockholders held on June 27, 2019, stockholders of the Fund approved a Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution (the “Plan”), pursuant to which the Fund filed a certificate of dissolution with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware and dissolved on October 4, 2019.

On May 28, 2020, as part of the Fund’s court-supervised wind-up proceedings pursuant to Sections 280 and 281(a) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) pending before the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (the “Chancery Court”), the Fund filed a verified petition for determinations pursuant to Section 280 of the DGCL. On August 20, 2020, the Fund filed with the Chancery Court a Motion for an Interim Order Approving Interim Holdbacks and Permitting Certain Distributions to Stockholders (the “Interim Order”) to receive authorization to make a cash distribution of all of the Fund’s assets in excess of the aggregate security amount required to be retained by the Fund pending adjudication of the amount of security reasonably likely to provide sufficient compensation for any claims that remain in dispute. The Chancery Court entered the Interim Order with some modifications on October 19, 2020. On October 23, 2020, the Board declared the Liquidating Distribution, which represents a distribution of substantially all of the Fund’s assets in excess of the aggregate security amount required to be retained by the Fund pending adjudication of any remaining disputed claims.

Further information regarding the amount and timing of any subsequent liquidating distributions to stockholders will be provided in subsequent press releases or filings with the SEC as such information becomes available.

Altaba Begins Sale of Remaining Stake in Alibaba (1/14/20)

By Andrew Bary

Altaba, a longtime holder of Alibaba Group Holding, has begun selling its remaining stake of five million shares in the Chinese e-commerce giant and expects to complete the sale of the entire holding in the coming days, according to a securities filing.

Altaba, which adopted a plan of liquidation last year, sold a million shares of Alibaba (ticker: BABA) on Monday at $229 a share for proceeds of $229 million. Altaba, which is organized as a closed-end fund, plans to provide daily updates on its website.

Altaba is taking advantage of gains in Alibaba stock, which has risen 35% since the end of September. The sale of its Alibaba stock could indicate that Altaba management, led by CEO Thomas McInerney, thinks this is a good time to unload the remaining stake. Altaba declined to comment on the sale.

On Tuesday, however, shares of Alibaba shares were down 1.6%, at $226.76.

Altaba stock was delisted from the Nasdaq in early October, when it filed a plan of liquidation in Delaware and the last sale was at $19.63. The shares have advanced since then in over-the-counter trading and changed hands on Monday around $21.50, according to one investor.

There is no listed market or ticker symbol now for Altaba, which has said it plans to make an initial distribution to investors in the fourth quarter of this year.

The most recent Altaba net asset value, for Sept. 30, was $23.08 a share. The current discount to net asset value reflects uncertainty about the timing liquidation payments and tax issues.

Individual investors have found it difficult or impossible to sell their Altaba stock since the delisting, and brokerage firms often show no carrying value for Altaba on client statements. This has made some investors mistakenly think that Altaba is worthless. The current over-the-counter market in Altaba is dominated by institutions.

Altaba is the former Yahoo!, which changed its name to Altaba in June 2017 after it sold its internet business to Verizon Communications (VZ). At the time, Altaba’s main asset was a 15% stake in Alibaba, some 384 million shares, which it obtained more than a decade earlier. Altaba has sold down that big stake and was left with five million shares when it moved to formally liquidate. The small stake was held for tax-planning purposes.

Altaba Files Certificate of Dissolution (10/04/19)

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Altaba Inc. (“Altaba” or the “Fund”) (NASDAQ: AABA) today announced that it filed a certificate of dissolution with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, as contemplated by the Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution (the “Plan”) previously approved by the Fund’s Board of Directors and stockholders. The certificate of dissolution, which became effective at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on October 4, 2019, provides for the dissolution of the Fund under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.

In connection with the filing of the certificate of dissolution, effective as of 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on October 4, 2019, the Fund closed its stock transfer books and discontinued recording transfers of its common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Shares”). Record holders of Shares are no longer able to transfer record ownership of their Shares on the Fund’s stock transfer books, other than transfers by will, intestate succession or operation of law.

The Fund has requested that The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) maintain records representing the right to receive any post-dissolution liquidating distributions, including transfers of such rights. Consequently, the Fund expects that transfers of such rights will be tracked by DTC. To the extent that a stockholder’s Shares were not held by a DTC participant as of 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on October 4, 2019, it could be more difficult for such stockholder to transfer such stockholder’s rights to receive any post-dissolution liquidating distributions.

In addition, The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) halted trading in the Shares on the NASDAQ Global Select Market following the close of regular trading on October 2, 2019. Nasdaq has advised the Fund that trading in the Shares will be indefinitely suspended prior to the opening of trading on the NASDAQ Global Select Market on October 7, 2019, and that Nasdaq will thereafter file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a Notice of Removal from Listing and/or Registration on Form 25 to cause the Shares to be delisted. The Fund expects to continue to be registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”) and will file reports in compliance with the 1940 Act and regulations thereunder.

Additional information regarding the Plan and the dissolution process can be found in the Fund’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A, filed with the SEC on May 17, 2019 (the “Proxy Statement”).

The dividend will reduce your tax basis since the payments represent a return of capital.

Once your basis is reduced to zero, you would have a capital gain.

Altaba Finally Rewards Its Shareholders. But the Ultimate Payoff Is Uncertain.

The former Yahoo! paid $51.50 a share to its holders Monday. Investors stand to make an estimated $3, or 15%, as the liquidation process plays out over the coming years.

By Andrew Bary

Altaba ? made a big distribution to its shareholders Monday under its liquidation plan. Its stock now amounts to an unusual arbitrage situation, with investor returns hinging on the amount and timing of future payments.

Altaba (ticker: AABA), the former Yahoo!, paid $51.50 a share to its holders Monday. The shares are trading Tuesday at $19.59, up 29 cents, adjusted for the distribution. The stock isn’t down by the full amount of the distribution, having closed Monday at $70.80.

It’s estimated that Altaba’s predistribution net asset value was about $74 a share, dropping to $22.50 now. This means investors stand to make about $3, or 15%, as the liquidation process plays out over the coming years. There is uncertainty, however, about how much investors will get in the liquidation and when the payments will be made. The bulk of the company’s assets now sit in cash and cash equivalents.

Barron’s has written that retail investors should consider selling their Altaba stock because of the complexity of the situation and its relatively moderate return potential—as well as potential liquidity issues. No company of Altaba’s size—$37 billion as of Monday—has ever liquidated. Wall Street arbitragers are believed to be sizable holders of the stock.

One of the biggest question marks is potential Chinese capital-gains taxes on Altaba’s sales of what had been its largest asset, a 15% stake in Alibaba Group Holding ? (BABA). Investors are assuming that no Chinese capital-gains taxes will be levied. The bulk of the funds that Altaba now is holding back are for potential Chinese taxes. It also has reserved about $10 billion for U.S. taxes that will be paid related to the Alibaba share sales.

Altaba has said it plans to make a second distribution in the fourth quarter of 2020. A final distribution or distributions are expected at a later date, which analysts have estimated could be in 2022.

There are only a few Wall Street analysts covering the company. The stock is being tracked by Street arbitrage and special-situation trading desks. The amount and timing of future distributions will reflect decisions by the Delaware court overseeing the liquidation. The quicker and larger the payments, the better for investors.

Wall Street analysts expect Chinese tax authorities to decide not to impose any capital-gains taxes on all of Altaba’s sales of Alibaba stock. The Chinese already have decided not to impose them on 2018 sales by Altaba. If China does seek to impose capital-gains taxes, it would complicate the liquidation process and potentially cut into returns.

Churchill Capital analyst Nick Pappas wrote recently that he expects Altaba to make a distribution of about $20 a share to holders in late 2020, with the rest coming at a later date or dates once the Delaware court is convinced that all potential liabilities have been addressed. “We believe that any further distribution (s) may take a number of years to be paid,” he wrote.

Adding to the complexity of the Altaba situation is that the company plans to file a certificate of dissolution in Delaware on Oct. 4. The shares will be delisted from the Nasdaq after then. It is expected that the shares will continue to trade over-the-counter on the Pink Sheets thereafter. The Pink Sheets are less liquid than the Nasdaq. The company said Tuesday that it will request the Depository Trust Company continue to maintain records of shareholders, allowing for the transfer of the liquidation rights—likely on the Pink Sheets.

The liquidation plan, announced by Altaba in April, caps a long history for Yahoo!, one of the leading internet companies during the dot-com boom of the late 1990s. While Yahoo!’s internet business withered, the company made a shrewd early investment in Alibaba that turned into a hugely valuable stake in the Chinese e-commerce company. Under pressure from investors, Yahoo! sold its internet business to Verizon Communications ? (VZ) in June 2017, after which it changed its name to Altaba.

The intention at the time was to maximize the value of the company’s remaining assets, mainly the 15% stake in Alibaba, as well as a much smaller stake in Yahoo Japan ? (4689.Japan). Under CEO Tom McInerney, Altaba sold the vast bulk of the Alibaba stock and all of Yahoo Japan.

Altaba Sets Date for Filing Certificate of Dissolution (9/23/19)

Altaba Inc. (“Altaba” or the “Fund”) (NASDAQ: AABA) today announced that, in furtherance of the liquidation and dissolution of the Fund pursuant to its Plan of Complete Liquidation and Dissolution (the “Plan”), the Fund intends to file a certificate of dissolution with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware immediately following the close of regular trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on October 4, 2019.

Upon the filing of the certificate of dissolution, the Fund will close its stock transfer books, after which record holders of the Fund’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Shares”), will be prohibited from transferring record ownership of their Shares, except by will, intestate succession or operation of law. In addition, the Fund expects that trading in the Shares on the Nasdaq Global Select Market will be halted promptly following the filing of the certificate of dissolution and indefinitely suspended prior to the opening of trading on October 7, 2019, and that the Shares will thereafter be delisted. As previously disclosed, the Fund will request that, following the filing of the certificate of dissolution and the closing of the Fund’s stock transfer books, The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) maintain records representing the right to receive any post-dissolution liquidating distributions, including transfers of such rights. Consequently, the Fund expects that transfers of such rights will be tracked by DTC. To the extent that a stockholder’s Shares are not held by a DTC participant as of the filing of the certificate of dissolution and the closing of the Fund’s stock transfer books, it could be more difficult for such stockholder to transfer such stockholder’s rights to receive any post-dissolution liquidating distributions.

The Fund expects that any purchases or sales of the Fund’s Shares that are not settled prior to the filing of the certificate of dissolution and the closing of the Fund’s stock transfer books will not be settled. The Fund urges stockholders to consult their brokers to ensure that any trades are executed in sufficient time to settle prior to the closing of the Fund’s stock transfer books. Further, Computershare, the Fund’s transfer agent, will fully suspend Direct Registration System sales and the Direct Stock Purchase Plan that it currently administers with respect to the Fund’s Shares. Consequently, stockholders who hold their Shares directly on the books of the Fund’s transfer agent and wish to sell Shares prior to the closing of the Fund’s stock transfer books will not be able to do so after September 25, 2019 other than through an account with a bank, broker or other participant in DTC.

As previously announced, stockholders of the Fund approved the liquidation and dissolution of the Fund pursuant to the Plan at a special meeting of stockholders held on June 27, 2019. Additional information regarding the Plan and the liquidation and dissolution process can be found in the proxy statement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 17, 2019 (as supplemented, the “Proxy Statement”).

Purchased AABA at $69.50, which is only slightly lower than current market price of $70.22.

Shareholders will receive $51.50 on 9/23/19. On 9/24/19, AABA will open down about $51.50. It would trading around $18.70 if this happened tomorrow.

I have invested in liquidations for well over 35 years. In nearly all cases, the amount paid out over time has been in excess of what management expects the liquidation value or is this example, NAV to be.

NAV at 6/30/19 was $74.15.

There are two types of investors: those who sit pat and those who reinvest proceeds. I do the latter.

Please do not consider this a recommendation. It is what I plan to do.

Altaba is the largest liquidation in history.

Shares will be delisted. I expect them to trade in the "grey market". Institutional investors will be ready to buy your shares.
Delisting and Lack of Market for Trading of the Shares (page 58)

We anticipate that, upon the filing of the Certificate of Dissolution, trading in our Shares will be suspended on Nasdaq, and our Shares will thereafter be delisted. However, under the Nasdaq rules, Nasdaq has discretionary authority to suspend or terminate the listing of a company that has announced that liquidation has been authorized by its board of directors and that it is committed to proceed, even if the Shares otherwise meet all enumerated criteria for continued listing on Nasdaq.

In addition, we will close our stock transfer books and discontinue recording transfers at the Effective Time. Thereafter, record holders of the Shares generally will be prohibited from transferring record ownership of their Shares following the Effective Time (except by will, intestate succession or operation of law). The Fund will, however, request that, following the Effective Time, The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) maintain records representing the right to receive any post-dissolution liquidating distributions, including any transfers of such rights. Consequently, the Fund expects that any transfers of such rights will be tracked by DTC. To the extent that a stockholder’s Shares are not held by a DTC participant as of the Effective Time, it could be more difficult for such stockholder to transfer such stockholder’s rights to receive any post-dissolution liquidating distributions.

After our Shares are delisted from Nasdaq, brokers may make a market for interests in the Shares representing the right to receive any post-dissolution liquidating distributions, in the “over-the-counter” market. There is no assurance that such market will arise or, if one does arise, for how long it will be maintained or how actively such interests in the Shares will trade. Both trading prices and volumes in any such “over-the-counter” market could be volatile and erratic.
