Google founders Brin and Page to sell 10 million shares

Google Inc founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin plan to sell about 10 million of the company's shares over the next five years, the company said in a regulatory filing on Friday.

Page and Brin currently own about 57.7 million shares of Google's Class B common stock -- roughly 18 per cent of Google's outstanding capital stock and about 59 per cent of the voting power of Google's outstanding capital stock.

If the two founders both sell 5 million shares as planned, they would own about 47.7 million shares, which would represent around 15 per cent of Google's outstanding capital stock and 48 per cent of the voting power of Google's outstanding capital stock.

Page is currently Google's president of products and Brin is its president of technology.
