B Corporation is a non-government certification. Just means you are one of the "good guys", but could imply how they wish to be perceived.

If they did want to, they would have to incorporate as such; I understand B Corporation status does not afford tax benefits enjoyed by non-profits with IRS 501(c) classification.

I agree that they are not likely to operate as a non-profit, but I presume they could if they really wanted to.
Note also the reference to B Corporation status ( https://bcorporation.net/)

It is an outright sale of an asset, the proceeds of which go toward "an endowment fund" for ISOC projects/activities. No revenue sharing is involved.
The announcement indicated that all projects and operations will continue as is under new ownership. With its policy on public/community benefit presumably driven and overseen by Ethos Capital's Stewardship Council - I wonder who they will put on this Council.

PIR under Ethos Capital will lose its non-for-profit status, so there might be financial implication not to ISOC but possibly PIR's existing .org customers/registrants.
We shall see.

As Eduardo said there are lots of unknowns at present. Who knows?

Why will it have major implications on ISOC Chapters?

I know for sure that this was not even hinted at during the last PIR Advisory Council meeting.. but it will have major implications for the ISOC chapters. What are they/ISOC thinking?

Had we known this was lurking in the background -- which it most certainly was at the time -- it might have been a different discussion. How much did ISOC know and when did they know it -- a question ISOC chapters might want to ask.

 I must say, this casts the decision to drop price caps for .org in a slightly different light.  I will keep you posted as I learn more.
