Another Merger - On2 Joins Google
 
 

The stockholders of On2, a company specializing in video compression, approved a deal late today that will make the company a wholly-owned subsidiary of Google.

Under the terms of the agreement, all On2 shareholders will be able to convert each share of stock into either 15 cents in cash or one one-thousandth of a share of Google stock, without interest. The deal is expected to be signed and officiated on Friday.

On2 has clients ranging from AOL to Nokia to Sony to XM radio. Their video compression services are used in Flash video, VoIP applications, mobile streaming, and other embedded devices. The company also developed a video codec called "Flix," which is used for Web-based video production.

Trading on the AMEX stock exchange, where On2 was traded as ONT, closed at share prices of 69 cents tonight. The deal was finalized after the end of the trading day.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
