Annual report shows that deal was for less than $200 million.
We now have a better idea of how much GoDaddy paid to acquire Uniregistry and Frank Schilling’s domain name portfolio.
GoDaddy issued its annual report today. The report states:
In February 2020, we entered into agreements for two acquisitions with an aggregate purchase price of approximately $196.9 million, of which $149.1 million has been paid in cash. The remaining $47.8 million will be paid upon receipt of certain regulatory approvals and satisfaction of other customary closing conditions as well as upon the expiration of the contractual holdback period.
It’s unclear if both of these acquisitions are Uniregistry or if it includes another company. GoDaddy also acquired South African social content startup Over and that is included in the total.
