Ok – so we’re not actually for sale (before we get clients phoning in a panic), unless of course Microsoft wants to come in and offer $40 billion to aquire a thriving web design and consultancy company from Glasgow – the value they placed on Yahoo just last week, when they attempted to buy the web search company.
Their somewhat random offer was actually 62% above the “market value” of Yahoo, based on their share price at the time, a valuation most traditional businesses in the past would have jumped at. But just how do you value a “Web Company”… It’s certainly not an easy task, and (as MS have shown) not just down to the current stock market trends.
So… will we see a MSNahoo? Or will (as many as speculating) Google suddenly appear as a rival bidder. And what will it all mean for us web users? Less choice? A better service? Only time will tell…
Ps – I was only kidding about selling NSDesign for $40 billion… I’d take less.. 😉
