Oath is new name for AOL-Yahoo combined companyTags : Yahoo , Verizon
AOL chief executive Tim Armstrong confirmed the move on his personal Twitter account ahead of a planned publicity campaign.
The tweet read: "Billion+ Consumers, 20+ Brands, Unstoppable Team. #TakeTheOath. Summer 2017."
However, the new name is already being ridiculed online, with one site saying, "At least it's better than Tronc."
Tronc, formerly known as Tribune Publishing, is a US company which owns the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and other newspaper titles.
Verizon is buying Yahoo's internet business for about $4.8bn (£3.6bn) in cash. The deal is expected to close in the current quarter.
The remaining parts of Yahoo, which includes its 15% stake in Alibaba and Yahoo Japan, will be called Altaba.
