Microsoft Working on Yahoo Bid

Three years after Microsoft unsuccessfully tried to take over Yahoo, the company is at it again: Microsoft is working with investors to put together a bid for Yahoo, according to The Wall Street Journal. Under the arrangement being discussed, Microsoft would kick in the most money—several billion dollars—while private-equity firm Silver Lake Partners and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board would pitch in as well. The firms haven’t committed to the deal, however, and could still abandon it if it turns out to be too complex.
