Apparently Microsoft approached Yahoo! In a very aggressive manner. Microsoft's reached out to Yahoo! just after it announced its earnings on Tuesday, observes Kara Swisher. And then then simply asked Yahoo! Executives to respond within the next two days, in case they don't comply, the Redmond giant would go public with the offer, which they eventually did.
It's already known that earlier such attempts by Microsoft were simply refused, but the Yahoo! Executives can't seem to believe the aggressive approach adopted. Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“I woke up this morning and couldnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t believe that they did it,…I could not believe Microsoft would be so aggressive.Ă˘â‚¬Âť said an executive.
