Verizon's general insight Craig Silliman told columnists the information rupture could trigger a proviso in the arrangement that would permit the U.S. remote administration organization to not finish it.
"I think we have a sensible premise to trust at this moment that the effect is material and we're looking to Yahoo to show to us the full effect. On the off chance that they trust that it's not then they'll have to demonstrate to us that," he said, declining to remark on whether talks are under approach to renegotiate the price tag.
A Yahoo representative said: We are positive about Yahoo's esteem and we keep on working towards coordination with Verizon."
The arrangement has a provision that says Verizon can pull back if another occasion "sensibly can be relied upon to have a material antagonistic impact on the business, resources, properties, aftereffects of operation or money related state of the business."
Silliman said the U.S. Government Trade Commission has affirmed Verizon's securing of Yahoo, however regardless it needs endorsement from the European Commission and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is inspecting the intermediary.
Verizon has had preparatory briefings from Yahoo yet regardless it needs "critical data" from Yahoo before it settles on a ultimate choice on the materiality of the hacking of no less than 500 million email accounts, Silliman said.
He said Verizon is "totally assessing (the rupture) and will make judgments about whether and how to push ahead with the arrangement in light of our assessment of the materiality."
