On Friday, Adevinta announced that its deal to acquire eBay's Classifieds division is finally complete.

It's been almost a year since Schibsted offshoot Adevinta announced the biggest classifieds deal in the history of our industry. Adevinta's acquisition of eBay's classifieds division was worth $9.2 billion and sees eBay retain a minority stake in its Classifieds division as well as taking equity of Adevinta.

It's a very important deal for European online classifieds companies with a lot of brands affected and it's also a deal that has rumbled on and generated a lot of headlines. We've summarised the deal's history and impact on the real estate classifieds market in Europe in the infographic and timeline below.
