Daily Trust - - IT WORLD - From Nahimah Ajikanle Nu­rudeen, La­gos

Mi­crosoft Corp. has an­nounced that it has com­pleted ac­qui­si­tion of the Nokia de­vices and S busi­ness.

The com­pany said the ac­qui­si­tion has been ap­proved by Nokia share­hold­ers and by gov­ern­men­tal reg­u­la­tory agencies around the world.

The com­ple­tion of the ac­qui­si­tion marks the first step in bring­ing these two or­ga­ni­za­tions to­gether as one team.

Mi­crosoft CEO, Satya Nadella said, “To­day we wel­come the Nokia De­vices and Ser­vices busi­ness to our fam­ily. The mo­bile ca­pa­bil­i­ties and as­sets they bring will ad­vance our trans­for­ma­tion. To­gether with our part­ners, we re­main fo­cused on de­liv­er­ing in­no­va­tion more rapidly in our mo­bile- first, cloud- first world.”
