Operating profit amounted to Yahoo! 35 cents a share, while analysts had expected the figure to around 30 cents. Net income for the year increased 46% to $ 331.2 million.
Commenting on the results of the quarter, the head of Yahoo Marissa Mayer announced that it intends to start a chain reaction in the company that would eventually lead to a significant increase in sales. However, growth is expected in the long term, as long as Yahoo! lowers full-year sales forecast for 2013 to $ 4.55 billion, from $ 4.6 billion.
