Doing what it takes
Yesterday Microsoft issued a statement to the effect that they are going to ”do what it takes” to convince the Yahoo! shareholders to accept the Ms offer.
”It is unfortunate that Yahoo! has not embraced our full and fair proposal to combine our companies,” the statement begins. ”Based on conversations with stakeholders of both companies, we are confident that moving forward promptly to consummate a transaction is in the best interests of all parties.”
Well, you don’t get to where Ms is today by taking no for an answer. I wouldn’t be surprised if Yahoo! are just holding out for more money.
When I see what my blog looks like in the Internet Explorer, I’m thinking it might not be a bad idea. For Ms to buy Yahoo!, that is.
