Tata Group Buys Google An Internet Rumor

The true fact about Tata Group buying Google Inc. An analytical determination of the possibility of a buyout or takeover.

Internet is full of silly circulating viral rumours and this one just blows off your mind. Tata Group buying Google for 130 billion USD is one hilarious rumour circulating around the world, the most funny part about it is that some self proclaimed internet entrepreneurs have endorsed this rumor without even verifying the facts. This article will give you analytical details as to why such a buyout or takeover of Google by Tata Group is not a possibility.

Tata group is an Indian multinational conglomerate company headquartered in the Bombay House in Mumbai, India. In terms of market capitalization and revenues, Tata Group is the largest private corporate group in India. It has interests in chemicals, steel, automobiles, information technology, communication, power, beverages, and hospitality. The Tata Group has operations in more than 80 countries across six continents and its companies export products and services to 80 nations. The Tata Group comprises 114 companies and subsidiaries in eight business sectors. It is evident from this introduction that Tatas are quite financially powerful entity. Their total financial assets are worth $52.8 billion. However it should also be noted that assets of Tata Group are saturated and it would be quite a tedious process to untangle them and sell them off.

Google Inc. is an American multinational public corporation invested in Internet search, cloud computing, and advertising technologies. Google hosts and develops a number of Internet-based services and products, and generates profit primarily from advertising through its AdWords program. The total financial assets of Google Inc. are valued at US$ 57.851 billion. If you compare the value of assets held by Tata Group and Google Inc., you will find that Google is richer than Tata Group by approximate 5 billion US dollars. This financial situation holds true at-least for the year 2011, now we need to question ourselves as to how a lower financial power would be able to buy a bigger financial power, such a scenario is almost impossible to happen at-least in 2011.

Indians take pride into anything and everything that gets posted as a positive remark about India, but they should also understand that if you are an Indian, you proclaim yourself to be some technology geek and social entrepreneur then you ought to get your facts corrected. I wonder what Americans would say when they come across such an illogical mail forward or blog posting about Tata Group buying Google Inc. If Ratan Tata reads it, he would surely have a good laugh about it. The takeover of Google by Tata Group will not be happening at-least in the next 5 years. A 5 billion dollar difference is after-all a big dis-proportionality to balance or overcome.

This news may be a rumor but someday an Indian corporate entity will buy Google. That corporate house may not be Tata Group but it will sure be an Indian one.
