In a Sunday surprise Square reported its second quarter earnings and dropped the news that it will buy Australian buy-now-pay-later (BNPL) firm Afterpay for $29 billion. The all-stock transaction will give Afterpay shareholders 0.375 shares of Square class A stock for every share they own. That’s roughly a 30% premium from where shares closed at the end of the market day Friday. Anirban Mahanti and Simon Erickson join the Monday edition of 7investing Now to break down the deal and to explain what the move means for Square’s long-term plans.
