Microsoft Corp Chief Executive Steve Ballmer on Tuesday said reports the company may buy German software firm SAP were a random rumour.

"I have nothing to say about rumours of acquisitions ... positively or negatively," he told reporters, when asked about an acquisition of SAP.

"It strikes me as a random rumour."

Microsoft on Monday sold a $3.75 billion debt issue, sparking talk that it could be readying a bid for the German firm.
