Yahoo Inc (YHOO.O) said it would proceed with the planned spinoff of its stake in Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (BABA.N) regardless of a favorable ruling from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

The spin-off will continue to be subject to certain other conditions, including the receipt of a legal opinion on the tax-free treatment of the deal under U.S. federal tax laws, Yahoo said in a regulatory filing on Monday. (1.usa.gov/1FxLxDD)
