The Financial Times reports this morning that Microsoft has put its Seattle subsidiary Razorfish up for sale.
Razorfish was founded in Seattle, and Microsoft bought the digital advertising company when it acquired aQuantive, also known as Avenue A, in 2007. Razorfish had a round of layoffs in February this year; here’s the story we ran on that.
According to the Financial Times, Microsoft has hired Morgan Stanley to find a buyer, and Publicis, a French marketing company, could be a candidate.
Update 11:08 a.m.: Microsoft is not commenting on the reports that Razorfish is for sale.
