Under the terms of the agreement, Microsoft will acquire Mojang for $2.5 billion. Microsoft expects the acquisition to be break-even in FY15 on a GAAP basis. Subject to customary closing conditions and any regulatory review, the acquisition is expected to close in late 2014.

Meaning they expect to regain the 2.5 billion by summer 2015. I don't think I like the sound of this...


Wrong. "Break-even by GAAP" means that they expect to make more money from the purchase than they would earned in interest on the $2.5B.

Goes to show that I didn't do my research well enough. Seems like a reasonable enough amount.

Yeah, don't you love it when you teleport back to where you were half an hour ago as soon as you leave your boat, Kb? Because you should. It's the best thing about boats, doing the exact same thing twice! It's amazing.
