Microsoft is in talks to acquire a 49% stake in ChatGPT owner OpenAI

OpenAI is currently raising funds at a $29 billion valuation and is allowing employees along with early investors to sell their shares at that valuation. Microsoft has already invested $1bn into the company in 2019 and is now looking to invest another $10B into OpenAI. Microsoft would receive 75% of OpenAI’s income until it has recovered its initial investment. Once they hit that threshold, they would have a 49% stake in OpenAI, with other investors taking another 49% and OpenAI's nonprofit parent getting 2%. Open AI are expected to generate ~1 Billion in revenue in 2024. Source: Finimize Image: The first day of OpenAI, 7 years ago (by Sam Altman)
