Google buys ad firm DoubleClick for $3.1 billion
I recently read an article about Google acquiring DoubleClick for $3.1 billion in cash. According to the article this purchase is Googles largest purchase yet, which far surpasses its previous largest purchase of the online video company YouTube for $1.65 billion. Googles stock price recently closed at $466.29/share. According to the article Google is planning to pursue acquiring several other companies. My question is; is there any end in sight for Google? They seem to be everywhere and known by everyone. Similar to Wal-Mart, Google has grown so large that I wonder if they will be able to sustain the growth and momentum they have created? What do you think? Do you think that management will be able to create ways of sustaining and maintaining the growth? Do you think that it is possible for a company to become so large that they can no longer sustain or maintain their operations?
