The most important part of the 8K is how the merger will happen and how stock will be effected or transformed eventually:

“Alphabet will initially be a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Google. Pursuant to the Alphabet Merger, a newly formed entity (“Merger Sub”), a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Alphabet and an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Google, will merge with and into Google, with Google surviving as a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Alphabet.”

Is that the normal way something like this is structured? It's pretty elegant.


Yeah, it's normal business weirdness. It's a reverse triangular merger: http://witnesseth.typepad.com/blog/reverse-triangular-merger...
