Google discloses it paid $966 million for Waze
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Google says that it paid $966 million to buy online mapping service Waze, six weeks after closing the deal.
The Internet search leader spelled out the purchase price in regulatory documents filed Thursday. Google Inc. withheld the price last month when it announced the acquisition of the Israel-based startup. The Associated Press and other media outlets had previously pegged the purchase price at $1 billion, based on information from people familiar with the negotiations who didn't want to be named.
