(BLOOMBERG) — Google Inc. will cut about 4,000 jobs at its Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. unit, or 20 percent of the staff at the company it bought for about $12.5 billion.
Two-thirds of the reductions will be outside the U.S., the Mountain View, California-based company said in a regulatory filing today.
Google will also shut down about one-third of Motorola Mobility’s 90 facilities and simplify its wireless product portfolio, it said. Google said the measure will incur severance-related costs of no more than $275 million.
