According to Reuters:

Google bought the money-losing cellphone maker for $12.5 billion last year – its largest acquisition ever – aiming to use Motorola Mobility’s patents to fend off legal attacks on its Android mobile platform and expand beyond its software business.

Motorola Mobility has 94 offices around the world//1/3 of the job cuts will be in the United States.
