Companies looking to get a piece of Yahoo’s core internet business — including search, mail, and news sites — have another week to place their bids, as the company extended the deadline for the auction to April 18. Pushing back the deadline means that Yahoo could have a deal in place by June or July. The auction was initiated in February when Yahoo ditched plans to spin off its stake in Alibaba. [Re/Code]
