Today CNBC reported that Yahoo intends to hold a product-focused event in New York City this coming Monday. Adding to the gravity of the happening, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer will be present, and speak.

Update: Yahoo has confirmed with TNW that it is hosting an event monday evening, with an invite teasing a major announcement: “join us as we share something special.”

Yahoo has been in the news recently as the potential acquirer of both Huluand Tumblr. As a company, Yahoo has been on a tear recently, buying small companies in rapid-fire transactions to help bolster is mobile development talent pool.

It is unclear if Yahoo intends to announce anything relating to acquisitions at the event, however, it is not out of the question; the term ‘product’ is ambiguous. Tumblr is, of course, based in New York.
