Analyst: Kylie Wansink


While Google still concentrates on its search engine services it has also become an innovative leader and player in not only the online digital media arena but also the mobile space. Its recent announcements regarding Motorola Mobility, Google+, Google Wallet, Google Offers, and YouTube Rentals indicate this company is again making important strategic moves that it hopes will position it well for the future. In addition, Google is closing down some services which have failed to take hold, such as PowerMeter and Google Health. Google’s moves are often influential - even if they aren’t profitable.

Key developments:

Recently Google has begun to make major strategic moves; Google has entered the m-wallet space; it has expanded its VoD offerings; it is developing a location-based deals service.

Companies covered in this report include:


Financial information includes:

Google advertising spend; Google Chrome market share; a report providing Google financial information prepared by Indigo Equity Research.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
