Verizon has sold AOL and Yahoo.
This time though, a private equity firm is going to take ownership of the two former web leaders.
The companies came to rise through the boom of the internet in the late-90s and early-00s.
Verizon says it will maintain a 10% stake in the new company, which will simply be called Yahoo.
Apollo Global Management will take over as part of the $5 billion deal.
