  • TikTok出售公告可能會在下週盡快發布


    ◎消息人士稱,這筆交易的價格可能在200億至300億美元之間,但補充說,TikTok仍在與微軟Microsoft 與甲骨文Oracle,就潛在出售事宜進行談判。此外,消息來源暗示,第三家美國公司也對此表示興趣。
    ◎不過,另一個新聞網站Axios建議,Walmart實際上正在與Microsoft進行潛在的交易,想把TikTok US變成更多面向創作者和用戶的電子商務應用程式。
    ◎其實這不是一個愚蠢的主意。風險投資公司(Andreessen Horowitz)去年就聲稱,未來所有人都將在TikTok等視頻應用上購物。短片是電子商務的未來,可以將它們視為具有強制性的可觀看廣告,並具有直接的購買連結。


    Strap in: the TikTok sale process may be even speedier than President Trump expected. CNBC reported yesterday that TikTok is “nearing an agreement” to sell its operations in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand – as soon as next week.
    Its sources claimed that the deal could be worth between $20bn and $30bn, but added that TikTok is still in talks with both Microsoft and Oracle over the potential sale. What’s more, those sources suggested a third US company has also thrown its hat in the ring.
    “Walmart has been working with SoftBank on a potential acquisition, but because that offer doesn’t include a cloud technology backbone component, it is likely a nonstarter with the US government,” claimed CNBC.
    But wait! Another news site, Axios, suggested that Walmart is actually working with Microsoft on a potential deal, adding that “the idea would be to help turn TikTok US into more of an e-commerce app for creators and users”.
    (Not such a silly idea. VC firm Andreessen Horowitz claimed last year that “In the future, we’re all going to be shopping on video apps like TikTok. Whether you’re buying instant noodles or high-end sweaters, it has become increasingly clear that short video clips are the future of ecommerce. Think of them as compulsively watchable commercials — with a direct link to buy.”)
