Yahoo Inc (YHOO.O) shareholder Starboard Value LP has urged the online media company to halt the spinoff of more than $20 billion in shares of Alibaba Group Holdings Ltd (BABA.N), the Wall Street journal reported on Wednesday.

The activist investor instead wants Yahoo to sell its Internet business, the newspaper reported, citing a letter Starboard Value sent to Yahoo.

Starboard Value and Yahoo could not immediately be reached for comment.
