Lenovo expects IBM server, Motorola Mobility deals to be completed by year end

HONG KONG, July 2 (Reuters) - Proposed purchases by China's

Lenovo Group Ltd of IBM Corp's low-end server

unit and Google Inc's Motorola Mobility business

should be completed by year-end, Lenovo Chief Executive Officer

Yang Yuanqing said on Wednesday.

Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that the $2.3

billion IBM deal was in limbo while the U.S. government

investigated national security issues.

The January announcement for the acquisition came nearly a

decade after Lenovo bought IBM's money-losing ThinkPad business

for $1.75 billion, which had also faced scrutiny.

Yang was speaking at Lenovo's annual general meeting in Hong

Kong.
