Google Acquires YouTube

October 9, 2006

Its official. Google has acquired Youtube in a $1.65 billion stock-for-stock deal. The company had a analyst call today at 1.30pm PST. The webcast is available at http://investor.google.com/webcast.html

It will be interesting to watch how Google Video and YouTube will be integrated. This acquisition also means that Google will possibly increase its emphasis on Video ads by pitching it more to advertisers. They will have 4 times more inventory than before (based on Google and YouTube market share).
