ARRIS (NASDAQ:ARRS) and Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) have jointly announced that ARRIS and Motorola Mobility, a Google subsidiary, have entered into a definitive agreement under which ARRIS will acquire the Motorola Home business from Motorola Mobility for $2.35 billion in a cash-and-stock transaction approved by the boards of directors of both companies. The transaction is expected to close by the second quarter of 2013, subject to customary approvals and closing conditions.
