Available in over 24 languages in more than 200 countries, the website focuses on business connections and industry contacts for employers and working professionals, allowing companies to present themselves through online pages and for users to find job listings and to enhance their connectedness in their area of expertise. LinkedIn filed for an initial public offering in January 2011 and made its debut on the stock market four months later on May 19. In December 2016, LinkedIn was acquired by Microsoft for approximately 26.2 billion U.S. dollars, making it Microsoft's most expensive acquisition to date. LinkedIn results were folded into Microsoft's Product Revenue and Service and Other Revenue segment.
