In an e-mail sent to Microsoft employees on February 22, Microsoft Platforms & Services President Kevin Johnson reiterated to Microsoft’s employees why Microsoft is continuing to pursue its goal of buying Yahoo.
The e-mail was not triggered by any new developments, a Microsoft spokeswoman said. It was simply “part of normal communication to employees,” she said.
In his note, Johnson didn’t say anything that he and other Microsoft brass haven’t said before since Microsoft made its proposal to the Yahoo board on January 30. Johnson told employees, according to the e-mail which Microsoft published on its Web site, that a Microsoft-Yahoo combo will create more competition in search and advertising, which is something major media companies want.
