European regulators said Thursday that they have set a new deadline of February 13 to decide the fate of Google's acquisition of Motorola Mobility, Reuters reported.
Regulators for the European Union originally said they'd. But in December, the EU Commission delayed the deadline stating that it wanted to review additional documents that Google had submitted to support its case.
U.S. regulators are also still evaluating the deal.
Motorola said in a statement that it expects to close the deal in early 2012.
The Company continues to work closely with Google to complete the proposed acquisition of Motorola Mobility as expeditiously as possible. The Company notes that the transaction remains subject to various closing conditions, and currently expects the transaction to close in early 2012 once all conditions have been satisfied. The Company reminds stockholders that it is possible that the failure to timely meet such conditions or other factors outside of the Company's control could delay or prevent completion of the transaction altogether.
