Google’s parent company Alphabet has announced it is selling off its testing division, including its testing arm, for $1.9 billion.
The deal is subject to regulatory approval, and Alphabet said it would give its parent company, Alphabet Inc, the opportunity to retain some of the assets in the division.
The parent company is also looking to sell off the testing division’s robotics division, and the company has a $3.3 billion cash balance.
Alphabet announced the sale of its testing unit in February 2017.
The company has struggled to make any progress in the robotics space, however, and it has struggled with the introduction of a more powerful version of its Google Glass wearable.
Alphabet’s parent also announced a merger with SoftBank Group Corp, and announced that its board has approved the sale.
Alphabet said the sale would not affect Alphabet’s other businesses.
Alphabet, which is currently worth $68.6 billion, is in the midst of an $8.6 trillion cash-and-stock deal to merge with Amazon, a deal that is expected to close in the first half of 2021.
