Ballmer hammers home Microsoft's 'high-value' strategy in final letter to shareholders

Gregg Keizer | Oct. 9, 2013
Unlike last year, no surprises in CEO's last letter to investors.

As of Sept. 13, Ballmer controlled about 4% of the company's shares for a paper value of approximately $11.1 billion at Monday's closing price. Co-founder and current chairman Bill Gates owns about 4.5% of Microsoft's shares, but because he sells about 80 million shares annually under a pre-set plan, by this time next year — assuming Ballmer retains his shares — Ballmer will be the largest individual stockholder.

Ballmer is up for reelection to the Microsoft board of directors when shareholders meet Nov. 19.
