“In early June, AOL Time Warner purchased Business 2.0 for $68 million and announced plans to merge it with Ecompany Now, its monthly magazine for the networked economy. In many ways, it was flattering that one of the largest media organizations in the world wanted to purchase a publication that was only in its second year of business. But as a friend of mine in the M&A business says, there are no mergers, only acquisitions, and this sale has proven to be just that.”
