Even Google dealt WhatsApp for $10 billion
As we all know the most happening trend is WhatsApp and Facebook but lets dig a bit in the past, a report from Fortune says that even Google had previously offered $10 billion to the messenger giant which never showed up. Jessi Hempel, from Fortune, reported that she got 2 sources who reported the same:
Two separate sources have told me that’s how much Google (GOOG) offered to purchase WhatsApp. The bid did not come with promise of a board seat, unlike the Facebook agreement.
But Google was not able to comment on this during one of the conversation with Fortune. Messenger innovator just got 9 more billions in its bank account which is a better deal. Lucky You, WhatsApp!
