Google Working to Address Europe’s Concerns About Motorola Mobility Deal

Google confirmed on Monday that the European Union has asked the company for more information as it reviews the search giant’s plans to acquire Motorola Mobility.

The company characterized the request as routine and shrugged off the notion the deal could be blocked.

“We’re confident the Commission will conclude that this acquisition is good for competition and we’ll be working closely and cooperatively with them as they continue their review,” Google said in a statement to AllThingsD.

Motorola shareholders have already approved selling to Google, though the transaction awaits antitrust approvals in the United States, EU and elsewhere.
