Motorola Mobility LLC

 

Motorola Mobility LLC is an American telecommunications equipment corporation owned by Google and headquartered in the Chicago suburb of Libertyville, Illinois. Motorola's networks division (called the Personal Communication Section (PCS), prior to 2004) pioneered the flip phone with the StarTAC in the mid-1990s. By the turn of the 21st century, it produced another innovative hit product, the (original) RAZR, a very thin flip phone. Motorola had a commanding lead in the analog cellphone market, but it was slow to embrace digital technology. This allowed global rivals such as Nokia and Samsung Electronics to bypass it; it essentially failed to enter the global smartphone market until the 2010s.

Motorola continued to experience severe problems with its cellphone/handset division in the latter-2000s, recording a record $1.2 billion loss in Q4 2007. Its global competitiveness continued to decline: from 18.4% market share in 2007, to 9.7% by 2008. By 2010, Motorola's global market share had dropped to seventh place, leading to speculation of bankruptcy of the company.

On August 15, 2011, Google Inc. announced that it had agreed to acquire the company for US$12.5 billion. The acquisition included a sizeable portfolio of patents owned by Motorola. On February 13, 2012 Google received final approval from the United States Department of Justice and the European Union. On 19th May 2012, the People's Republic of China approved the merger also for $12.5 billion, making it the last major trading commission to approve the merger. The merger was completed on the 22 May 2012.
