Yelp Said to Be Working With Goldman Sachs to Find a Buyer

Published on .

Yelp, the consumer-review website, is working with Goldman Sachs to find a buyer, a person with knowledge of the matter said.

The $3.4 billion company, based in San Francisco, may draw interest from potential suitors including Priceline, Yahoo, Amazon and Rakuten, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the process is private.

Representatives for Yelp and Goldman Sachs declined to comment. The Wall Street Journal previously reported that Yelp is exploring a sale.

Yelp went public in March 2012, pricing its shares at $15 each for a valuation of almost $900 million.
