While we await the news of Microsoft's next move in its pursuit of the unsolicited Yahoo acquisition, the Wall Street Journal has learned that the software giant plans to spend $1.5 billion to retain Yahoo employees should a merger - or takeover - occur.

The plan was revealed in court transcripts regarding a suit by shareholders against Yahoo's directors. The shareholders who filed the suit feel that Yahoo hasn't responded in good faith to Microsoft's bid. The suit was brought forth by two Detroit pension funds. The lawyers for the funds argued that a recent expansion of Yahoo employee benefits make it difficult for shareholders to get maximum value should an acquisition take place.
