Microsoft says it’s going public after the government’s latest push
Microsoft is going public on Wednesday with a $7 billion offer for its common stock.
Microsoft says it wants to raise $10 billion in a private-equity and venture fund, according to the filing.
Microsoft says the investment will help it “explore new opportunities to make a significant impact in the next decade.”
Microsoft’s announcement follows a recent push by the Securities and Exchange Commission to raise capital from private investors.
In December, the SEC announced it had bought $1.7 billion in shares in a public offering of Microsoft shares.
