Google to cut jobs force overseas

Josh Peterson Contributor

Google Inc. (GOOG) 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.
