Yahoo Inc is not opposed to Microsoft Corp's bid for the Web media company, as long as it is at the right price, Yahoo's board said on Monday in a letter to Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer.
"We have continued to make clear that we are not opposed to a transaction with Microsoft if it is in the best interests of our stockholders," the letter said. "Our position is simply that any transaction must be at a value that fully reflects the value of Yahoo, including any strategic benefits to Microsoft, and on terms that provide certainty to our stockholders."
While the title of this thread is "Yahoo says it's not be opposed to a Microsoft deal" the article seemed to show they are only making such comments in an attempt to stay on the good side of their investors.
