Research Triangle Park, North Carolina and Mountain View Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) and Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) announced today that Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility from Google is complete. The acquisition of the Motorola brand and Motorola's portfolio of innovative smartphones like Moto X, Moto G, Moto E and the DROIDTM series, as well as the future Motorola product roadmap, positions Lenovo as the world’s third largest maker of smartphones. Lenovo will operate Motorola as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Motorola’s headquarters will remain in Chicago. With the completion of the acquisition, Lenovo welcomes the addition of a new portfolio company with nearly 3,500 employees around the world – including about 2,800 in the U.S. – who design, engineer, sell and support Motorola’s outstanding devices. “Today we achieved a historic milestone for Lenovo and for Motorola – and together we are ready to compete, grow and win in the global smartphone market. By building a strong number three and a credible challenger to the top two in smartphones, we will give the market something it has needed: choice, competition and a new spark of innovation,” said Yang Yuanqing, chairman and CEO, Lenovo. “This partnership has always been a perfect fit. Lenovo has a clear strategy, great global scale, and proven operational excellence. Motorola brings a strong presence in the U.S. and other mature markets, great carrier relationships, an iconic brand, a strong IP portfolio and an incredibly talented team. This is a winning combination.”
Yahoo Inc is expected on Tuesday to outline cost-cutting efforts and give details of how it is evaluating possible acquisitions as it faces pressure from an activist investor, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a person who was briefed on the plan. Yahoo is considering acquiring one or more large technology startups with some of the $5.8 billion it made from the initial public offering of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, the newspaper said. Representatives at Yahoo did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment outside regular U.S. business hours. Last month, activist investor Starboard Value LP publicly pressured Yahoo to cut what it referred to as a "bloated" cost structure. Starboard, the second activist investor to target Yahoo in the last three years, also said the company should quickly "monetize" its Asian assets, which exceed the enterprise value of its actual business. Earlier this month, Yahoo said it is reducing the size of its operations in Bangalore, India, the Internet company's largest engineering facility outside its California headquarters. It is also closing its office in Jordan. Yahoo is "streamlining" its operations in foreign offices, which might involve a combination of closing offices, cutting jobs and moving workers to its Sunnyvale, California, headquarters, the Journal said.
