Everything you need to know about   Alphabet

 

Google's Mother Company  


 

Alphabet Inc is a holding company created in 2015 following a vast reorganization at Google. Alphabet is Google’s parent company. Alphabets’ subsidiaries offer various services including web-based search, hardware solutions, software applications, enterprise solutions, hardware products, maps, and advertisements. For most, Google was synonymous with a search engine, perhaps also for some mailbox. But since its creation, the group has grown enormously, and by the creation of this holding, not only the other brands of the group can be more visible, but also more efficient: each one is now more autonomous. 

 In 2015 the IT company rebranded itself as Alphabet. On the stock exchange, Alphabet Inc stocks are listed under the ticker name of GOOG or GOOGL.   

This reorganization also aims to please investors. The different branches of Google are now clearer, and easier to analyse separately. Alphabet has been accused many times of violating competition laws, especially because of its monopolistic position.
