    Breaking News: H Google αγοράζει την Motorola Mobility για 12,5 δις δολάρια!

    Αυτό κι αν είναι βόμβα. Η Google Inc ανακοίνωσε πως ήρθε σε συμφωνία με την Motorola, αγοράζοντας το 63% των μετοχών της, στην αξία κλεισίματος που είχαν την Παρασκευή και αντιστοιχούν σε 12,5 δις δολάρια.

    Τι σημαίνει αυτό; Πως η Google σταματά να είναι ένας “παίχτης” στην αγορά των λειτουργικών μόνο και προχωρά στην οριστική της ενασχόληση με τις απτές και πραγματικές συσκευές. Άρα, αντιμετωπίζει πια στα ίσια την Apple, αλλά θα ανταγωνιστεί και κατασκευαστές που χρησιμοποιούν Android.

    Well… ο κόσμος των συσκευών αλλάζει και αλλάζει δραματικά.

    Το παρασκήνιο πίσω από την εξαγορά αλλά και το αιτιολογικό της, θα το βρείτε εδώ

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. & LIBERTYVILLE, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG – News) and Motorola Mobility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:MMI – News) today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Google will acquire Motorola Mobility for $40.00 per share in cash, or a total of about $12.5 billion, a premium of 63% to the closing price of Motorola Mobility shares on Friday, August 12, 2011. The transaction was unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both companies.

    The acquisition of Motorola Mobility, a dedicated Android partner, will enable Google to supercharge the Android ecosystem and will enhance competition in mobile computing. Motorola Mobility will remain a licensee of Android and Android will remain open. Google will run Motorola Mobility as a separate business.

    Larry Page, CEO of Google, said, “Motorola Mobility’s total commitment to Android has created a natural fit for our two companies. Together, we will create amazing user experiences that supercharge the entire Android ecosystem for the benefit of consumers, partners and developers. I look forward to welcoming Motorolans to our family of Googlers.”

    Sanjay Jha, CEO of Motorola Mobility, said, “This transaction offers significant value for Motorola Mobility’s stockholders and provides compelling new opportunities for our employees, customers, and partners around the world. We have shared a productive partnership with Google to advance the Android platform, and now through this combination we will be able to do even more to innovate and deliver outstanding mobility solutions across our mobile devices and home businesses.”

    Andy Rubin, Senior Vice President of Mobile at Google, said, “We expect that this combination will enable us to break new ground for the Android ecosystem. However, our vision for Android is unchanged and Google remains firmly committed to Android as an open platform and a vibrant open source community. We will continue to work with all of our valued Android partners to develop and distribute innovative Android-powered devices.”

    The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including the receipt of regulatory approvals in the US, the European Union and other jurisdictions, and the approval of Motorola Mobility’s stockholders. The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2011 or early 2012.
