Rakuten to Buy Voice-Call App Maker Viber
Japan's Rakuten Inc. said it will acquire call-application maker Viber Media Inc. for $900 million, in the online retailer's first major foray into voice communications.
The deal for Cyprus-based Viber, which lets users make Internet-based calls on smartphones and computers, expands the Japanese e-commerce giant's global portfolio of services, which now spans e-readers, financial services, and the baseball team that until recently hosted star pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.
