Google’s $3.2 billion Nest acquisition is now final
Google said in a regulatory filing this morning that it had closed its acquisition of Nest on Feb. 7.
The $3.2 billion cash deal brings the smart thermostat and smoke detecting hardware company and its team — led by Apple's former iPod head, Tony Fadell — into the Google fold. At Google, Fadell is reporting directly to Larry Page.
A quick finalization was expected after the Federal Trade Commission fast-tracked its approval last week.
