Microsoft withdraws Yahoo offer

After three months of discussions, Microsoft has decided to withdraw its bid to acquire Yahoo. It will be interesting to see how Yahoo's shareholders react Monday, when Yahoo's share price is likely to fall back to pre-bid levels in the low $20's instead of hovering below $30. Especially as Microsoft says it raised the price in private discussions with Yahoo's board to $33 per share.
