ARRIS Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARRS), a global innovator in broadband media technology, announced today that it has entered into an agreement to sell approximately 10.6 million shares of its common stock, valued at $150.0 million, to Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA).  The sale of the shares to Comcast will be made in connection with the previously announced ARRIS acquisition of the Motorola Home business from Motorola Mobility, a subsidiary of Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG).  As provided for in the Motorola Home business acquisition agreement, the shares issued to Comcast will reduce, on a share-for-share basis, the number of shares of ARRIS stock to be issued to Google and simultaneously increase the cash consideration to be received by Google by $150.0 million.  As a result of the sale to Comcast, Comcast and Google will each own approximately 7.85% of the outstanding ARRIS shares post-closing based on ARRIS' current capitalization.  Neither the total amount of consideration paid by ARRIS for Motorola Home, nor the total amount of shares to be issued by ARRIS (now to Google and Comcast) will change as a result of this investment by Comcast.
