(AP) Microsoft has extended a guarantee that provides Yahoo with financial protection as part of the two companies' Internet search partnership.


An arrangement requiring Microsoft Corp. to pay Yahoo Inc. a minimum amount per search on Yahoo's website expired March 31. That had raised concerns Yahoo might make less money from the Microsoft partnership.


Those worries eased Tuesday with a regulatory filing that disclosed Microsoft is maintaining the revenue-per-search guarantee through March 2014.


Yahoo's stock gained 86 cents, or 3.4 percent, to $26.03 in afternoon trading. It's the first time the stock has been above $26 in nearly five years.


Under a 10-year alliance that began in 2010, Microsoft provides its search technology to Yahoo in exchange for 12 percent of the revenue from search ads on Yahoo's site.
