Microsoft offers $44.6bn for Yahoo

Feb 01, 2008 12:13:00 GMT

Microsoft offered to buy search engine group Yahoo for $44.6bn, or $31 a share, as the software giant seeks to catch up with arch-rival Google.

We can see the strategic sense in this deal for Microsoft as they need to expand their armory to battle Google.

But Yahoo are a basket case.

we cant help thinking that by the time Microsoft have gotten them fit for purpose Google will be even further ahead and Microsoft will be $40bn+ down!

Tempting but we say dont do it!
