I’m Mathew Karnitschnig, the Merge & Acquisitions reporter for the Wall Street Journal.
This morning microsoft’s unveiled an unsolicited 45 billion offer to acquire yahoo. The deal is being rumoured for mouths, for yahoo’s stock prices have fallen about 50 percent since oct, and microsoft has finally decided to pounce.
About a year ago, microsoft made an initial approach to yahoo and at the time yahoo said it wasn’t interested in pursuing a deal. But it’s own business says hit headwinds as recently described at its quaterly earnings report. And microsoft as well, has been looking over a should at google. Google controls a large portion of online advertizing market. And both yahoo and microsoft are concerned about google’s dominance in this area. Another concerned microsoft is that google is getting into some of its traditional sectors, including word processing and other applications that have really make microsoft what it is and it’s putting those online and free to anybody who has an internet connection. So all these forces together has promted microsoft to act it.
And the question is, will yahoo, which has typically taken a rather skeptical approach towards microsoft be willing to accept this? The ceo of yahoo, jerry young has been a long time enemy of microsoft, and it’s unlikely that he’s going to want to accept this deal.
