Alphabet Inc. Wiki, CEO, Owner, Subsidiaries and Net Worth

Alphabet Inc. is best known as the parent organization behind Google and some other companies such as DeepMind. The conglomerate oversees all of Google‘s operations in the United States and across the world.

Although the company was founded by the founders of Google, they have both resigned from their executive positions but still hold a high number of shares in the company. The founders have known to be bad at administration leaving key posts to those who are qualified such as Sundar Pichai who also heads Google.

With the coming of the company was restructuring within Google for better accountability and thus all of the subsidiaries under Google fell under the holding company.

Alphabet Wiki and History

On the 10th of August, 2015, the company was founded to be the new holding company of Google and its subsidiaries. This was done in order to not divert Google’s focus and scope.

The restructuring was an inspiration from Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway. BH had been structured as an holding company to many of its subsidiaries tat were run by different CEOs. This was replicated and thus, the birth of Alphabet Inc.

The company which is incorporated in Delaware, retained Google’s stock price history and ticker symbols which are “GOOG” and “GOOGL”, both listed on NASDAQ.
