Where did AOL come up with $315 million?

Betting on News, AOL Is Buying The Huffington Post (emphasis added)

The Huffington Post, which began in 2005 with a meager $1 million investment and has grown into one of the most heavily visited news Web sites in the country, is being acquired by AOL in a deal that creates an unlikely pairing of two online media giants.

The two companies completed the sale Sunday evening and announced the deal just after midnight on Monday. AOL will pay $315 million, $300 million of it in cash and the rest in stock. It will be the company’s largest acquisition since it was separated from Time Warner in 2009.

AOL is not the most solid company around; it’s laid off thousands of employees, shows no profit and pays no dividends. It has 106 million shares outstanding, currently trading at $21.39 (down since the announcement of the purchase) in the NASDAQ, and this deal will cost $3 per share outstanding.

HuffPo is not publicly traded.

So, my question is, Where did AOL come up with $315 million?


HuffPo death watch? and other items

Ralph Benko’s got The Huffington Post Deathwatch… since the HuffPo’s bleeding money.

I’m not totally convinced; it seems to me that there’s so much symbolic investment in the HuffPo as a liberal outlet that there will be sizable monetary injections for a very long time.

John Gibson Did Not Compare Eric Holder To Monkey With Bright Blue Scrotum (UPDATED), because earlier on they had said that Gibson had.

Classy, aren’t they!

A question that comes to mind is, must the HuffPo try to be Kos? But I digress.

As it turns out, it was Johnny Dollar who took the trouble to do the fact-checking, and sure enough, found out that the Huffington Post Smear of Gibson Uses Doctored Video!

Even some of the HuffPo’s commenters noticed.
