A few months back, Google announced its plans to acquire Motorola’s mobile division, Motorola Mobility. Naturally this was a very big deal, the deal $12.5 billion deal not withstanding, but also its implications since Google’s Android platform can be found on many of Motorola’s recent smartphones. This however did not sit too well with the antitrust regulators, who not too long ago requested to take a closer look at the Google-Motorola Mobility acquisition.
While the regulators are still combing through the deal, Motorola Mobility today announced that come 17th of November, a meeting for Motorola Mobility stockholders will be held at 10am in San Diego, whereby they will be entitled to cast their vote as to whether the majority of their stockholders will be amicable to the proposed acquisition.
While we can’t speak for the majority, so far there has been quite a fair number of positive feedback surrounding this acquisition, so putting the antitrust regulators aside, do you think that Motorola Mobility’s stockholders will vote in favor of the acquisition, or do you think that there’s a negative aspect of this acquisition that could be called into question?
