Alphabet's Sergey Brin, Larry Page, Erc Schmidt Lose $9 Billion

(Bloomberg) -- Larry Page, Sergey Brin and Eric Schmidt had about $9 billion wiped from their net worths in early trading Tuesday after Alphabet Inc. reported slowing ad sales.

The company tumbled the most in almost seven years after first-quarter revenue missed analysts’ estimates. Revenue from Google advertising rose 15 percent, the slowest pace since 2015.
