Satya Nadella said

“The LinkedIn team has grown a fantastic business cantered on connecting the world’s professionals, I have always had a great admiration for LinkedIn, I have been talking with Reid and Jeff for a while … I have been thinking about this for a long time.”

By this deal Microsoft targeted Organization Growth by integrating Microsoft Office Business suite users with LinkedIn and Targeted advertising.

Jeff Weiner will continue as a CEO for LinkedIn and reports to Satya Nadella. LinkedIn shares surged 47 percent after the announcement on Monday to near $193, Microsoft’s stock was down 3.2 percent.

The deal has been approved by boards from both the companies and it is expected to be closed by end of 2016.
