Item 8.01. Other Events.
On January 29, 2014, Google Inc., a Delaware corporation ( Google ), entered into an Acquisition Agreement (the Acquisition
Agreement ) with Lenovo Group Limited, a Hong Kong corporation ( Lenovo ). The Acquisition Agreement provides for the acquisition
(the Acquisition ) by Lenovo of Googles Motorola Mobility mobile devices business (the Business ), including certain related assets,
intellectual property rights and contracts. Google will retain the vast majority of the Businesss patent portfolio, which will be licensed back to
the Business for its continued operations.
Under the terms of the Acquisition Agreement, Lenovo will acquire the Business for total consideration of (i) $660 million in cash,
subject to adjustments for working capital, deferred revenue and net debt, (ii) $750 million in ordinary shares of Lenovo (the Lenovo Shares
) based on the Lenovo Share price at closing, with the maximum number of Lenovo Shares not to exceed 618,301,731 and the minimum
number of Lenovo Shares not to be less than 505,883,235, and (iii) a $1.5 billion promissory note payable, without interest, on the third
anniversary of the closing. Lenovo is required to offer to prepay the entire principal amount outstanding under the promissory note if, among
other things, Lenovo becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of another entity during the period in which any amount payable under the
promissory note is outstanding. Lenovo can elect to pay some or all of the face amount of the note in cash at closing, in which event the face
amount of the note will be reduced accordingly. In lieu of issuing all or any portion of Lenovo Shares at closing, Lenovo has the option to pay
an amount in cash equivalent to such portion of the Lenovo Shares which would have been issued under the share consideration. Such amount
will be added to the cash consideration with a corresponding decrease in the share consideration. The Lenovo Shares will be subject to transfer
restrictions until the first anniversary of the closing, subject to customary exceptions. The cash consideration payable by Lenovo is expected to
be funded by a combination of Lenovos existing cash on its balance sheet and additional bank borrowings.
The closing of the Acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including the absence of any material adverse effect on
either Lenovo or the Business, the receipt by Lenovo of certain required consents and those consents, as of completion, remaining in full force
and effect, or no longer being required, as well as clearance by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States ( CFIUS ),
termination or expiration of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 and receipt of
certain foreign antitrust approvals and clearances. The closing is subject to approval of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange of the issuance of the
Lenovo Shares and certain third party consents required to be obtained by Lenovo in connection with the Acquisition Agreement. The closing
is not subject to any financing condition or vote of Googles or Lenovos stockholders.
The Acquisition Agreement contains customary representations, and warranties, and covenants by Google, and Lenovo, including
covenants regarding the operation of the Business prior to the closing.
The Acquisition will be completed on the third business day following the first day on which there is satisfaction or waiver of all
conditions precedent to the obligations of the parties to the Acquisition Agreement.

Exhibit 99.1

Lenovo to Acquire Motorola Mobility from Google

Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, and Mountain View, California - January 29, 2014: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) and
Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) today have entered into a definitive agreement under which Lenovo plans to acquire the Motorola Mobility
smartphone business. With a strong PC business and a fast-growing smartphone business, this agreement will significantly strengthen Lenovos
position in the smartphone market. In addition, Lenovo will gain a strong market presence in North America and Latin America, as well as a
foothold in Western Europe, to complement its strong, fast-growing smartphone business in emerging markets around the world.

The purchase price is approximately US$2.91 billion (subject to certain adjustments), including US$1.41 billion paid at close, comprised of
US$660 million in cash and US$750 million in Lenovo ordinary shares (subject to a share cap/floor). The remaining US$1.5 billion will be
paid in the form of a three-year promissory note.

Lenovo, which in 2005 acquired IBMs PC business and its legendary PC brand, will now acquire world-renowned Motorola Mobility,
including the MOTOROLA brand and Motorola Mobility's portfolio of innovative smartphones like the Moto X and Moto G and the DROID
Ultra series. In addition to current products, Lenovo will take ownership of the future Motorola Mobility product roadmap.

Google will maintain ownership of the vast majority of the Motorola Mobility patent portfolio, including current patent applications and
invention disclosures. As part of its ongoing relationship with Google, Lenovo will receive a license to this rich portfolio of patents and other
intellectual property. Additionally Lenovo will receive over 2,000 patent assets, as well as the Motorola Mobility brand and trademark

Motorola Mobility enjoys outstanding brand awareness around the world, and is currently the #3 Android smartphone manufacturer in the U.S.
and #3 manufacturer overall in Latin America.

The acquisition of such an iconic brand, innovative product portfolio and incredibly talented global team will immediately make Lenovo a
strong global competitor in smartphones. We will immediately have the opportunity to become a strong global player in the fast-growing
mobile space, said Yang Yuanqing, chairman and CEO of Lenovo. We are confident that we can bring together the best of both companies to
deliver products customers will love and a strong, growing business. Lenovo has a proven track record of successfully embracing and
strengthening great brands - as we did with IBMs Think brand - and smoothly and efficiently integrating companies around-the-world. I am
confident we will be successful with this process, and that our companies will not only maintain our current momentum in the market, but also
build a strong foundation for the future.

Lenovo has the expertise and track record to scale Motorola Mobility into a major player within the Android ecosystem. This move will
enable Google to devote our energy to driving innovation across the Android ecosystem, for the benefit of smartphone users everywhere, said
Larry Page, CEO, Google.

As part of Lenovo, Motorola Mobility will have a rapid path to achieving our goal of reaching the next 100 million people with the mobile
Internet. With the recent launches of Moto X and Moto G, we have tremendous momentum right now and Lenovos hardware expertise and
global reach will only help to accelerate this, said Dennis Woodside, CEO, Motorola Mobility.

The transaction is subject to the satisfaction of regulatory requirements, customary closing conditions and any other needed approvals.
