Google hasn't bought shares in Lenovo, says re/code

|By:, SA News Editor

Reports that Google (GOOG) has purchased a 5.94% holding in Lenovo Group (LNVGY) for $750M are incorrect, the re/code Web site says.

Re/code writes that the reports were due to a misreading of a filing by Reuters.

Google is due to receive $750M worth of Lenovo shares as part of the deal to sell its Motorola handset division to the Chinese company for $2.91B in cash and stock.
