Back in July, Avast announced that it wants to purchase rival security company AVG for $1.3 billion. The acquisition went through all the requirements and is now complete. Vince Steckler, Avast Software CEO, just announced that.

"Today, I am proud to announce the completion of the acquisition of a majority stake in AVG,” said Steckler. "So we will operate as a single company as of Monday, October 3, 2016. I would like to extend a warm welcome to the AVG team, AVG customers, as well as carrier and channel partners, and I am eager to tell you about our plans for the next few months."
