Microsoft to Yahoo: Hurry up already!

Microsoft Corp said on Monday that its $44.6 billion unsolicited offer for Yahoo Inc was generous and it expects Yahoo’s board and shareholders to agree to the buyout quickly.”We trust the Yahoo board and the Yahoo shareholders will join with us quickly in deciding to move down an integrated path,” Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer said in an annual strategy meeting with analysts.

Microsoft’s comments follow a weekend of maneuvering by Yahoo, which, according to sources familiar with Yahoo’s strategy, is considering a business alliance with Google Inc to rebuff Microsoft’s proposal. It has also received preliminary contacts from media, technology, telecommunications and financial companies, another source close to Yahoo said. (link)
