Amazon buys shoes site Zappos

Posted on Thursday, July 23 2009 @ 18:04:18 CEST by


Amazon announced the acquisition of online shoes shop Zappos:
Whoa. This was unexpected: Amazon has agreed to a stock takeover of Zappos.com, a Las Vegas-based online retailer that has become famous for its unusual corporate culture.

While Zappos started out selling only shoes, it has since expanded to other products.

"This morning, our board approved and we signed what's known as a 'definitive agreement,' in which all of the existing shareholders and investors of Zappos (there are over 100) will be exchanging their Zappos stock for Amazon stock," a memo posted to Zappos by CEO Tony Hsieh read. "Once the exchange is done, Amazon will become the only shareholder of Zappos stock."
