Motorola Divides Into Two Companies

The former Motorola is now officially two companies. On Jan. 4, the Illinois-based business completed its planned separation into two publicly traded companies.

Motorola Solutions, trading under ticker symbol MSI, now

offers solutions for enterprise mobility and vertical markets,

including public safety and government, with data-capture products,

WLAN solutions and integrated command and control communications.

Motorola Mobility Holdings, now trading as MMI, will act as an umbrella

company over a Mobile Devices business unit — offering smartphones,

tablets, etc. — and Motorola Mobility, which leverages the capabilities

of both the Mobile Devices and Home businesses.

“We are pleased that Motorola Mobility has reached this

important milestone. After more than two years of planning, today we

begin operating as a financially strong, independent company trading on

the New York Stock Exchange,” Sanjay Jha, chairman and CEO of Motorola

Mobility, said in a statement. “We are well-positioned to build on the

strong momentum we have in smartphones and end-to-end video solutions —

and to take advantage of opportunities resulting from the convergence

of media, mobility, computing and the Internet.
