Larry Page and Sergey Brin formed Google in September 1998 when they were Ph.D. students at California’s Stanford University. Together, they own about 14% of their shares and control 56% of the voting power of stockholders by supervoting stocks. On September 4, 1998, in California, they founded Google as a privately owned corporation in California. In Delaware, Google was then reincorporated on October 22, 2002. On August 19, 2004, an initial public offering (IPO) took place and Google moved to its Mountain View, California headquarters, called the Googleplex. Google announced plans to reorganize its diverse interests into a conglomerate called Alphabet Inc. in August 2015. Google is the leading subsidiary of Alphabet, which will continue to be the umbrella corporation for the Internet interests of Alphabet. Sundar Pichai was appointed Google’s CEO, replacing Larry Page, who became Alphabet’s CEO.
