Web vendor Rakuten to buy Lycos Japan

Rakuten Inc, the operator of Japan's largest Internet shopping mall, said Wednesday it has agreed with Sumitomo Corp to buy its web search service unit, Lycos Japan Inc.

Under the agreement, Rakuten will also purchase a 46.8% stake from the Terra Lycos group of the United States and buy new shares to be issued by Lycos Japan on Friday, raising the web vendor's stake to 90.0%, Rakuten said. (Kyodo News)
