Although Google is a leading market participant that primarily belong to the search engine and online advertising market sphere, the company might have some exciting acquisition plans targeting companies from other areas except the internet zone, for example, tech, robot and home automation. However, despite being very ambitious and known for their diversified attitude, the company founders couldn’t just clinch every single acquisition plan they ever dreamed of.
For Google, acquisition through stocks used to be the biggest barrier as that could reduce the founder’s control over the company drastically. The company founders never wanted outsider’s interference in the company’s most important decisions. This is why the company founder used to be reluctant about settling an acquisition deal through voting shares.
