According to informed sources of the resource CNBC, the video service TikTok is very close to concluding an agreement to sell its assets in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, which may be announced next week.
Sources of CNBC claim that the deal is in the range of $ 20– $ 30 billion. In turn, the Wall Street Journal announced the intention of ByteDance, the parent company of TikTok, to receive almost $ 30 billion for the American video service segment. So far, none of those wishing to get ownership of the TikTok business in the US is not ready to offer such an amount.
The desire to acquire the video service division TikTok, which has faced a potential US ban from the Trump administration over national security concerns, was confirmed yesterday by retailer Walmart, which has teamed up with Microsoft.
The intention to buy the US segment of TikTok has also previously been attributed to Oracle, Twitter, Netflix, Softbank and Alphabet. TikTok is currently in talks with Oracle and the Microsoft-Walmart tandem, sources say.
