They thought that this may affect their studies and hence have thought to sell of this website to George Bell who was the Excite CEO. When George rejected the offer, it has turned their life. After four years, the company was at a position to sell 1.96 Crores shares each for 85 dollars. With that offer, the value of that company’s market reached 23 billion dollars (Rs. 1,15,000 Crores). Because of the specialties of Google search engine, the shares of the company has skyrocketed. For the first time, the price of the share has reached 700 dollars on 31st October 2007.
