Головная голландская компания Yandex NV договорилась продать весь свой русский бизнес за $5.2 миллиарда. Сделка выглядит кривой до невозможности, по сути это оценка бизнеса всего в 10.4, поверх которой дискаунт в 50% из-за текущих российских законов. После сделки голландскому Яндексу предстоит еще и переименоваться, т.к. он забирает себе часть продуктов, которые давно уже за пределами России, но точно теряет права на бренд.


Search engine Yandex owner to exit Russia in $5.2 billion deal

LONDON (Reuters) -Yandex NV has struck a 475-billion-rouble ($5.21 billion) deal to sell what has been dubbed "Russia's Google" to a group of Russian investors, marking the biggest corporate exit from the country since Moscow invaded Ukraine almost two years ago. The Kremlin-engineered deal would see Russia's largest technology player fall entirely under Russian ownership, including a fund ultimately owned by oil major Lukoil, and cement Yandex's departure from Western tech circles. Once seen as one of the few Russian companies with the potential to become a global business, Nasdaq-listed Yandex had developed leading online services, including search, advertising and ride-hailing in Russia.
