After shutting almost a third of its offices in World, Motorola Mobility has planned to shut down its India website. What took the world by surprise was the recent announcement of Motorola Mobility to lay off 20 percent of its work force.
Anyone visiting the Motorola Mobility India website gets a message that reads, “Important Message to our customers in India. We are streamlining our business and support systems, and unfortunately, we’ll no longer have a dedicated website for India. Your local support site will remain open well into the future, and we’ll continue to provide support for our existing products”
Google bought Motorola Mobility for 12.5 billion in May. Motorola Mobility has gone through heavy losses since last year and there seems no recovery.
Regarding the changes taking place in the company Google said in the US Securities and Exchange Commission, “These changes are designed to return Motorola’s mobile devices unit to profitability, after it lost money in fourteen of the last sixteen quarters”.
