Feedburner-Google Deal In Final Stages, Possible $100 Million Valueby Team Goelji on May 24, 2007
Lots of chatter over the past few days about a possible acquisition of Feedburner by Google, starting with a â€œrumorâ€ from Sam Sethi at Vecosys based on a â€œvery trusted sourceâ€ who said Google wanted in on the RSS ad market. Now multiple reportsâ€”TechCrunch, ClickZâ€”each quoting a single source say an agreement is in place. TechCrunch goes farther and pins a price tag of about $100 million, primarily cash upfront, on the deal, adding that the founders will be locked in for â€œa couple of years.â€
A Feedburner exec told me the usual â€œno comment on rumors and speculation.â€ More as warranted.
