The NY post has reported that Microsoft CEO – Steve Ballmer and CFO Chris Liddel have offered to sweeten the deal of the Yahoo! merge should Yahoo! formally accept the offer of entering formal negotiations.
The new and improved offer will most likely be behind the scenes, through ‘back-channels’ it is labeled. This means Jerry Yang and the other board members might recieve some more beneficial side perks as a results.
Should such an offer not go ahead, it leaves Microsoft with only a few choices, a proxy fight for the deal or total abandonment.
We the people just want an answer Microsoft!
