List of Acquisitions by Google

Posted on: January 6, 2009

Google’s largest acquisition is the purchase of DoubleClick, an online advertising company, for US$3.1 billion. Because of the size of the acquisition, United States antitrust regulators took nearly a year to investigate the deal and clear it for approval. The majority of the companies acquired by Google are based in the United States, and in turn, a large percentage of these companies are based in or around the San Francisco Bay Area.

Google has acquired 54 companies as of now.
