Microsoft and Be, Inc announced today that a settlement was reached, concerning the antitrust lawsuit Be, Inc filed against MS, back in February 2002.
As part of the settlement, Be, Inc will receive the amount of $23.250.000 USD, and in what is a peculiar (and funny) note, Microsoft admits to no wrongdoing. As you well know, Be, Inc is undergoing dissolution, in accordance to the stockholders vote back in November 2001. After payment of taxes and several others fees, the remaining money will be distributed among Be's stockholders, as were back in March 15, 2002.
Well... is it just me, or does it look like MS got a nice deal once again? Maybe it's just me.
Be, Inc And Microsoft Reach Settlement.
