Steve Case To Buy Back AOL?

from the never-happen dept

This isn’t the first time Steve Case has been rumored to want to buy back AOL from Time Warner, but since the talk of Time Warner’s willingness to sell off AOL has been getting hotter lately, so is the story that Case is putting together a syndicate of buyers to raise $10 billion to buy back AOL. It seems unlikely this will ever occur. Half the problem of the original deal was the ego thing between execs from each side – and the last thing they’d want to do is hand AOL back to Case and watch him do well with it.
