Letter set GOOG - 2.25% , the guardian organization of Google, paid $380 million to obtain stealthy startup Bebop, as indicated by an administrative revelation on Monday evening.

The procurement was initially reported in mid-November, short the sticker price.

Bebop was established by Diane Greene, a fellow benefactor and previous CEO of VMware who has sat on Google's top managerial staff following 2012. She had said next to no openly in regards to the startup, despite the fact that a 2014 trademark documenting proposed that it was creating HR, advantages and preparing administration programming.

By new revelation, the whole $380 million is in value, and Greene plans to give $148.62 million of those returns "to a benefactor prompted store." It creates the impression this speaks to her whole stake in Bebop.
