Schmidt reiterated Google's hope that it could complete the DoubleClick deal, which is currently the subject of an extended U.S. federal antitrust investigation.
"We are quite convinced that the proposed merger meets all appropriate U.S. laws," he said.
Microsoft and other Google rivals such as AT&T, have urged antitrust officials to examine the combination closely, saying it could give Google too much control over online advertising.
DoubleClick offers a digital marketplace that connects ad agencies, marketers and Web site publishers. It has more than 1,500 corporate clients.
Schmidt also said during a lecture Wednesday that Google was unlikely to buy a media content company.
