5 Companies That Had A Rough Week

Google Misses Out In Bidding For GitHub

While Microsoft makes this week's "5 That Came To Win" list for its $7.5 billion deal to buy GitHub, Google was reportedly a loser in bidding for the source code repository and development collaboration platform.

Google had been in discussions with GitHub about an acquisition at the same time Microsoft was negotiating an acquisition. 

Ultimately Microsoft won the deal by agreeing to pay a 25-times multiple on GitHub's $300 million annual revenue.
