  SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Yahoo Inc. /quotes/comstock/15*!yhoo/quotes/nls/yhoo YHOO +4.22% said Tuesday its first-quarter net income fell to $223 million, or 17 cents a share, compared to $310.2 million, or 22 cents a share in the same period last year. The Internet giant said net revenue for the period ended March 31 fell 6% to $1.06 billion. Yahoo's first-quarter earnings reflect an impairment charge of 2 cents a share, related to Yahoo Japan. The results compare to a year-earlier period when the company's earnings were boosted by its sale of the Zimbra email service, and its search partnership with Microsoft Corp. /quotes/comstock/15*!msft/quotes/nls/msft MSFT -0.12% . Analysts polled by FactSet Research had expected Yahoo to report first-quarter earnings of 16 cents a share, and $1.05 billion in net revenue.
