Article says that Deepmind was given £40m by Alphabet, but that's actually accounted as turnover for research services, so a minor distinction to make. But what's far more interesting is that near enough the same sum was charged by somebody in the Alphabet group as a "management service fee", so that they put the money in (on paper) and then scooped it all back out again.
