有 “俄罗斯的谷歌” 之称的搜索引擎公司 Yandex 已将其俄罗斯业务部门出售给本地投资者，售价 4750 亿卢布，折合 48 亿欧元。在过去的一年半时间里，Yandex 与克里姆林宫进行了谈判，以将其俄罗斯业务从总部位于荷兰的母公司分离出来。彭博社称这是俄乌冲突后离开俄罗斯的公司中的 “最有价值的交易”。Yandex 的管理团队将获得该公司的最大股权，俄罗斯石油公司 Lukoil 的基金将持有 10% 的股份。通过出售俄罗斯业务部门，Yandex 的母公司将获得一个新的品牌名称，并专注于开发其他国际项目，包括 AI 云平台和自动驾驶技术。
Yandex, the search engine company often referred to as the “Russian Google,” has sold its Russian business unit to local investors for a price of 475 billion rubles, equivalent to 4.8 billion euros. Over the past year and a half, Yandex has been in negotiations with the Kremlin to separate its Russian operations from its parent company based in the Netherlands. Bloomberg describes this as the “most valuable deal” among companies leaving Russia after the conflict with Ukraine. The management team of Yandex will gain majority ownership of the company, while a fund from Russian oil company Lukoil will hold a 10% stake. By divesting its Russian business unit, Yandex’s parent company will adopt a new brand name and focus on developing other international projects, including an AI cloud platform and autonomous driving technologies.
