Alphabet previously Google Inc began as a research project nicknamed BackRub in 1998 by Stanford Ph.D. students Larry Page and Sergey Brin. This project started with the intention of gathering backlink data and to create a link structure of the World Wide Web. The idea for the original search engine was that web pages with the most backlinks from highly authoritative websites must be most relevant, was the basis for their search engine. The company was incorporated on Sep 4, 1998, and by the end of that year it had 60 million pages under its index.

Five years post incorporation, the company held its initial public offering on Aug 19, 2004.On August 10, 2015, Google Inc. announced plans to create a new public holding company, Alphabet Inc. Alphabet was created as a subsidiary directly owned by Google Inc. The roles of these two companies – one as the owner and the other as the subsidiary – was then reversed in a two-step switch. First, a dummy subsidiary of Alphabet was created. Then Google merged with that dummy subsidiary while converting Google stock to Alphabet stock. The post-merger subsidiary, no longer a dummy, changed its name to "Alphabet Inc." Under Delaware law, a holding company reorganization such as this can be done without a vote of shareholders, as this reorganization was. The restructuring process was completed on October 2, 2015. Alphabet retains Google Inc.'s stock price history and continues to trade under Google Inc.'s former ticker symbols "GOOG" and "GOOGL"; both classes of stock are components of major stock market indices such as the S&P 500 and NASDAQ-100. Alphabet stock historical data are available since the date it went public. As is evident from an Alphabet stock history chart, Alphabet stock price has gone up significantly, making it one of the greatest companies of modern America. Alphabet shares took off in spite of a weak market for IPOs, as can be evidenced from Alphabet stock market history (See: Alphabet stock chart). However, the famous Dutch auction was a disaster and never really caught on with IPOs with the latest tech biggies like Facebook and LinkedIn relying on the conventional route. Google went on to become the most used search engine with a lot of people switching from Yahoo. Alphabet's largest subsidiary is Google, but Alphabet is also the parent company to Calico, GV, Google Capital, X, Google Fiber, Jigsaw, Sidewalk Labs, and Verily. While many companies or divisions formerly a part of Google became subsidiaries of Alphabet, Google remains the umbrella company for Alphabet's Internet-related businesses. These include many of the most iconic products and services long associated with Google, such as the Android mobile operating system, YouTube, and Google Search, which remain direct components of Google Inc. and were not made subsidiaries of Alphabet. Alphabet's portfolio encompasses several industries, including technology, life sciences, investment capital, and research.

Alphabet stock split history shows that the stock has split only once in its history of existence. This event took place on Apr 13, 2014.Google announced two-for-one stock split with the creation of non-voting shares, called class C that trade under the ticker GOOG. The class A shares have limited voting rights. The company has not paid any dividends to its investors till date.
