Following the $315 million Huffington post acquisition, AOL is reported to be in the process of laying off staff: AllThingsD reported layoffs will be announced following the closure of the HuffPo deal, which was substantiated by AOL CEO Tim Armstrong, as per a report in The Wall Street Journal. Yesterday, the The Times Of India reported (unconfirmed) that some managers have told their teams that their units would be shutting down, but not elaborated on which. Bangalore, India is the International Headquarters of AOL Inc, and hence is likely to be impacted by layoffs. On being contacted by MediaNama, an AOL India spokesperson has declined to comment (for the time being) on whether their have been any lay-offs so far, saying only they're expecting a team from the US in the next few days, in order to finalize some restructuring. AOL India employs around a thousand people (including contractors) across the portal business and R&D units, according to the AOL India spokesperson. An unconfirmed email in Business Insider suggests that the executive team will arrive on March 14th, and there will be 500 layoffs in India.
