The dinosaurs are, in a sense, the gateway drug.

Stephen Wolfram says he almost had a deal with Google, but it ‘blew up’

Stephen Wolfram says he almost had a deal with Google, but it 'blew up'

As you may recall, Wolfram Research signed a deal with Microsoft a few years back that saw some Wolfram Alpha functionality integrated into Bing. As it turns out, it very nearly found its way into a certain other search engine as well. In an interview at The Next Web conference in Amsterdam today, Stephen Wolfram revealed that his company had tried to work with Google and “almost had a deal,” but it “blew up.” Unfortunately, he didn’t provide any further details about when those talks took place or exactly what the potential deal entailed, and it doesn’t sound like we can expect that deal to revived anytime soon — especially considering Google’s own efforts that are increasingly overlapping with Wolfram Alpha. As Wolfram himself notes, though, the two companies do have something of a longstanding connection: Google co-founder Sergey Brin was actually an intern at Wolfram way back in 1993.

Google paying $1 to run Provo fiber, must build it out within five years

Google Fiber deal sees Provo sell its network for $1, but Google pays for upgrades

While it’s well-established that Google Fiber’s expansion into Provo, Utah hinges on Google buying the city’s existing iProvo network, we didn’t immediately learn what it took to land the tentative deal. Newly available details of the agreement reveal that the up-front cost is largely in the visitor’s favor — it’s the long-term development that rewards the locals. Google only pays $1 to buy the local fiber network, but it has five years to finish upgrades and deployments that could ultimately cost $30 million, according to the Deputy Mayor’s estimates. About the only remaining costs for Provo are its already existing (if significant) development loans, and the city can always buy the network back for $1 if things go sour. The pact also leaves the door open to public WiFi, although there are no guarantees that Google will mirror its New York City efforts anytime soon. When the search giant has a very healthy bank balance, we doubt there will be much quibbling over the exact terms; just know that the arrangement isn’t strictly one-sided.

Liberty Global’s $15.8B Acquisition Of Virgin Media Is Sailing Through EU Antitrust Court

Liberty Global acquires Virgin Media

Reuters has reported, and TechCrunch has now confirmed with an independent source close to the situation, that the European Union’s competition commission is approving the deal for Liberty Global to buy UK’s Virgin Media for $15.75 billion, first announced in February when it was calculated to be worth up to $23.3 billion with debt factored in. As we understand it, there will be no antitrust conditions put on the merger, a crucial step for the two companies to close the deal more quickly.

Virgin Media, which offers TV, broadband, phone and mobile service in the UK, and pay-TV giant Liberty are now awaiting final, official notice in writing. The EU is due to officially announce its decision by April 15.

Virgin Media, which is active only in the UK, will complement Liberty Global’s operations in the U.S. and continental Europe and will ramp up competition between Liberty Global and Sky, the pay-TV and broadband provider partly owned by News Corp., as well as with OTT, non-infrastructure content players like Netflix and Amazon, which operates Lovefilm in the UK.

As of February, the last month that Virgin released subscriber numbers, the merged entity would cover 25 million customers across 14 countries, with the potential to reach 47 million homes.

Regulatory clearance is an important hurdle for the two companies to move ahead in its deal. However, is not clear how much of a hinderance other legal wranglings will post. Virgin Media’s board is getting sued over the merger by some shareholders claiming the assets are being sold for an “unfair price.”

When Liberty and Virgin first announced the deal in February, Virgin noted the financial terms as follows:

Under the terms of the agreement, Virgin Media shareholders will receive $17.50 in cash, 0.2582 Liberty Global Series A shares and 0.1928 Liberty Global Series C shares for each Virgin Media share that they hold. Based on Liberty Global’s Series A share price of $69.46 and Series C share price of $64.50 as of February 4, 2013, this implies a price of $47.87 per Virgin Media share — reflecting a 24% premium to Virgin Media’s closing price on February 4, 2013.

Calculating in debt, that gave the deal a final implied valuation of $23.3 billion at the time the deal was announced. However, it looks like today the value could be even higher, at $24.1 billion. (The Financial News story linked here has an interesting report on some of the play-by-play that led up to the deal before the new year.)
