Meta Said to Be Considering Sale of its European Business
Meta, the global digital media company, is said to be considering the sale of its European business, according to sources. The move comes as Meta looks to cut costs amid a tough cost-cutting push.

The sale would bring in an estimated $1 billion in proceeds. It’s unclear which companies might be interested in acquiring Meta European business.

Additionally, Berry said that Meta plans to outsource certain functions within the company in order to reduce costs. These cost cutting measures come as Meta seeks to bolster its finances by $10 million over the next year.
