Microsoft to Buy Yahoo for $44.6 Billion?

Last year May, I posted an article, Microsoft + Yahoo VS Google, on a possibility of Microsoft buying Yahoo. This time, Microsoft approaches Yahoo again and offered an enormous $44.6 billion takeover bid. This is an offer of $31 a share and represents a 62 percent premium to Thursday’s closing share price. One potential roadblock to a Microsoft-Yahoo merger will be likely antitrust concerns. The European Union could interfere and study on monopoly possibility should a merger go ahead.

Is the offer worth the money? My opinion is both corporations are far too different in terms of culture. It would be difficult to integrate both systems into one and both may end up competing with each other.

Read further from below link and do not forget to read the comments posted by readers as well.
