Microsoft announces $26 billion deal for LinkedIn

 


SEATTLE – Microsoft said Monday that it was acquiring LinkedIn in a $26.2 billion cash deal, as the company seeks new sources of growth on the internet.

The acquisition, by far the largest in Microsoft’s history, unites two companies in different businesses: one a big maker of software tools, the other the largest business-oriented social networking site with more than 400 million members globally.

Executives involved in the deal said that the common thread prompted the acquisition.
