Moto total cost $12.5B to Goog in 2011:
- $3.2B Moto's 2011 cash
- $2.4B Moto's 2011 deferred tax assets
- $2.35B Moto's Set-top-box business sold in 2012
- $75M Moto's factories business sold in 2013 (incl 7K factory employees)
- $2.91B Moto's Mobility business sold in 2014

Thus Moto's remaining assets including patents, buildings (in Chicago and elsewhere), probably a good part of the 12K employees cost Goog $1.56B

Doing that, Goog may have well protected and guided the Android ecosystem along in the past couple years.
