The company that was founded in 1998 but went public in 2004 now has a new operating structure. The company that used to be called Google is going to become a new holding company called Alphabet.

"Alphabet is mostly a collection of companies. The largest of which, of course, is Google. This newer Google is a bit slimmed down, with the companies that are pretty far afield of our main Internet products contained in Alphabet instead."

"Alphabet will operate as the parent company for a number of smaller companies, including Google, which will continue to focus on Internet products. Android, YouTube, search and ads will remain part of Google Inc."

The corporate restructuring announcement came just this Monday where they announced the formation of an umbrella company called Alphabet and naming a new CEO to the core business of Google. Sundar Pichai, who has been with Google since 2004, is taking over as CEO of Google while Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin will run Alphabet - Page as CEO and Brin as President.
