Eric Schmidt, chairman and CEO of Google, said in a statement that video and mobile “are now at the heart of users' online experiences and at the core of both our businesses.” His counterpart at AOL, Tim Armstrong, said in a statement that “all aspects of our partnership will be improved by this deal.”
