The acquisition process took place shortly after the company announced its Initial Public Offering (IPO) on Thursday, March 2, 2017, local time.
Proclaimed earlier, Snap Inc. closed its first day of trading on the New York Stock Exchange at US $ 24.48 (US $1 per share), with a market capitalization of US $ 28.3 billion.
As a deal, Snap will recruit founder Ctrl Me Robotics, Simon Saito Nielsen, and acquire the company's assets and devices in the near future. Thus was launched Business Insider via BuzzFeed.
