Microsoft Is Said to Be Nowhere Close to a Bid for Yahoo

Microsoft Corp. isn’t anywhere close to making an offer for Yahoo! Inc. and senior executives of the software maker aren’t involved in discussions, two people familiar with the matter said.

Microsoft does plan to review Yahoo’s financial information, due to be circulated as soon as this week, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the deliberations are private. Yahoo doesn’t regard Microsoft as a serious bidder, said a person familiar with Yahoo’s thinking.
