The American Companies That Aren’t Actually American Anymore


Motorola was founded in 1928 and has been supplying Americans with electronics for years. Motorola is most known for its mobile phones, but before that technology was invented, it first focused on producing radios. Google ended up buying the company in 2012 for $12.5 billion as they wanted to start making their own smartphones.

The company survived throughout the years and remained in American ownership until it was purchased by the Chinese company Lenovo in 2014. Google lost around $10 billion as it sold Motorola for only $2.9 billion. Many people have questioned why they took a loss, but it seems it didn’t affect Google.
