Microsoft Reportedly Close To A $7 Billion Purchase Of Skype | paidContent

Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT), which has been quiet on the deal front for several years now, is reportedly set to change that in a big way, picking up Skype for $7 billion. The Wall Street Journal (NSDQ: NWS) cites sources who say a deal could be announced tomorrow. It would be Microsoft’s largest acquisition in its history, topping the company’s $6.3 billion purchase of aQuantive in mid-2007, which has arguably not paid off.

More to come.
