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.

We've summarised the deal's history and impact on the real estate classifieds market in Europe in the infographic and timeline below.
