Yahoo has gone beyond its useful years and its time is over, one analyst told CNBC on Wednesday.
Trip Chowdhry, managing director and senior analyst at Global Equities Research, told CNBC's "The Rundown" that from a fundamental point of view, no company will be interested in buying Yahoo, including Microsoft.
Last week, a report by
Re/code said the software giant might be interested in financing the bids of private equity firms looking to bid for Yahoo.
"I think Microsoft will participate with any private equity firm or whoever wants to buy [Yahoo] so that they maintain their influence ... [and] continue to provide its Bing search on Yahoo properties," said Chowdhry, adding he doesn't see the company buying Yahoo.
Yahoo and Microsoft started a partnership in 2009, which was amended in 2015, under which Microsoft pays Yahoo a percentage of Bing Ads revenue delivered from Yahoo searches.
