Steve Ballmer is a sell out. Well, at least with a lot of his Microsoft stock. The big guy plans on selling up to 75 million shares of stock by the end of the year. That’s a lot of stock, and a lot of money. He claims that he isn’t going to jump ship anytime soon, and it is a personal financial choice. Hey, the guy needs a new yacht, can you blame him!? Why have all that invested, and never touch it.
“Even though this is a personal financial matter, I want to be clear about this to avoid any confusion,” Ballmer said in a statement on the company’s Website. “I am excited about our new products and the potential for our technology to change people’s lives, and I remain fully committed to Microsoft and its success.”
