Barnes & Noble’s Microsoft Deal to Drive Overseas Sales

Barnes & Noble Inc.’s partnership with Microsoft Corp. will accelerate its first expansion into international markets by providing access to millions of customers, Chief Executive Officer William Lynch said.

“We don’t aspire to be anything less than being a leader in international markets when we launch,” Lynch said today in a telephone interview. “We couldn’t have done a better deal and had a better partner than Microsoft that allows us to compete internationally.”
