Microsoft Wants Yahoo’s Search


After failing to acquire the company over the past several months, Microsoft Corp. has proposed to buy Yahoo Inc's search business and take a minority stake in the Web pioneer, stopping short of a full-out merger. As part of the deal Yahoo would put its Asian assets, including significant minority stakes in Yahoo Japan and China's Alibaba Group, up for sale, while Microsoft would buy a chunk of what remains of the company.

The talks were revealed by the two companies on Sunday, but they declined to reveal the terms of the discussions.
