Google FeedBurner Buyout ‘Confirmed’

SMS Text

According to TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington, the rumors have been confirmed and Google is purchasing FeedBurner for $100 Million.

The deal is apparently in the closing stages and according to Michael’s source, the buyout is all cash and the founders of FeedBurner will be staying with the company for the next couple of years.

The information we have is that the deal is now under a binding term sheet and will close in 2-3 weeks, and there is nothing that can really derail it at this point.

Does this mean that all of the blogs we subscribe to with RSS powered by FeedBurner will be serving Google AdSense ads? We hope not 🙂
