Microsoft has made a bid to buy Yahoo in order to compete with Google. The offer would amount $44.6 billion. This offer would be 62% above the closing price of Yahoo! shares on Thursday and considered by Yahoo! as a hostile movement to be studied.
The result of the purchase would end with an impressive and powerful company, but it would also mean that Yahoo! had then definitely accepted that it has nothing to do against Google. This option would be the solution for Yahoo! to avoid the dismissal of a thousand workers, 7% of its current staff. This is the second time that Microsoft tries to acquire Yahoo! in one year.
