After the counter offer of $40 per share from Yahoo, it seemed like that was all that was needed to end the deal and put it on the shelf. At nowhere near Microsoft’s $31/share, it felt as if there was an insurmountable gap. Not so fast. Seems like Microsoft is countering the counter offer. “So… let’s say $35/share and we end this little thing. Deal?” At one point, they were unwilling to pay so much, but now things have changed. Does Big M feel the heat from all these other platforms and feel it’s necessary to get this deal done before someone offers $37 or so?
You know, I had a dog one time that would growl if another dog came near his food. He never really wanted to eat it. He just wanted to make sure the other dog didn’t get it. I’m just saying.
