China Clears Google's Motorola Acquisition
Chinese antitrust regulators approved Google's proposed acquisition of Motorola on Saturday. The deal, first announced in August 2011, makes Google the owner of Motorola Mobility, and is valued at $12.5 billion.

The companies expect that the deal will close early next week.
