Oracle Corp. finally cracks the deal to take a stake in TikTok and US President Donald Trump also gave approval to it. But, Oracle Corp. isn’t the only investor, Walmart is also there in the deal. The new formation having TikTok with its majority in stake and other investors like Oracle and Walmart will be called TikTok Global.

As per the reports, Oracle has a plan to acquire a 12.5% stake and along with that it will be TikTok’s ‘trusted technology partner’. That is because Oracle will house TikTok’s data in that US server and also get access to the source code and algorithm so that it can review, update, and monitor the entire setup.

Walmart, on the other hand, will take a 7.5% stake of TikTok Global. The Chief Executive Officer of Walmart, Doug McMillon will be one of the board members of TikTok Global.
