An anonymous source told Fox News that Google will be selling the company in the near future.
This source, who spoke to Fox News on condition of anonymity, said that Google is now in talks with private equity firms about selling the business to fund its continued growth and growth in the future.
The source added that Google “wants to make money, but it wants to do so for the long term.”
The source said that “Google is at the tipping point where they are going to be financially in a position to take a risk.”
Fox News reported earlier this week that Google had hired private equity firm Blackstone Group to explore the sale of Google.
The report quoted a Blackstone executive saying that “there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be able to do that.”
Fox also reported that Blackstone’s chief investment officer, Kevin G. O’Neill, is also a member of the Google board.
A Google spokesperson told Fox that the company is “very excited about its new partners and the opportunity they are presenting.”
A Google executive previously told FoxNews.com that the search engine company’s “search engine is performing well, and it’s been growing steadily since the first quarter.”
According to Fox’s report, the source said “Google’s search advertising business has grown $60 billion since Google launched in 1998.”
In January, Google said it had reached $3.5 billion in revenue from its advertising business, and Google said last month that it has $2.3 billion in advertising revenue from Google Search, its search engine for mobile users.
However, Fox News has reported that Google has yet to show that its search advertising revenue actually grew during the past year.
Google has faced criticism over its advertising practices, which have included a ban on ads that are tied to sex or nudity, the use of terms like “gay porn” and “bitch porn” in ads, and an agreement to pay users to click on links that appear to be from adult websites.
