One cell-phone factory may delay Microsoft's Nokia buy for six months
Posted: 01-Apr-2014 [Source: PC World]

[Regulatory issues around a phone factory in southern India may delay the purchase of Nokia by Microsoft.]

Mark Hachman -- "One cell-phone factory employing 8,000 people in southeast India may be the stumbling block for Microsoft’s $7.17-billion Nokia acquisition, delaying the entire process by up to six months.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the factory is the critical element of a tax audit being conducted by the Indian government. Until the deal clears regulatory approvals, it can’t go through.

Normally, however, “regulatory approval” means the approval of regulators like the Federal Trade Commission or the Department of Justice. But since Nokia—as well as Microsoft—have a worldwide presence, other governments get a say in how the deal affects them, as well."
