Very interesting indeed. From the Journal (my linking mechanism is down at the moment, I am traveling):
Microsoft said it plans to buy Norwegian data-search company Fast Search & Transfer for 6.6 billion Norwegian kroner, or about $1.2 billion. The offer is a 42% premium to the target company’s most recent closing share price. Fast Search & Transfer’s board of directors has unanimously recommended the offer, and shareholders representing 37% of the outstanding shares have accepted it.
