Google, on Tuesday, unveiled its plan to make an unspecified number of job cuts at DoubleClick Inc following the closure of its 3.2 billion acquisition deal of the advertising technology company.
Google said in a statement that it had been limited by law from making detailed integration plans and confirmed that by April it expects to have a clear plan for staffing levels in DoubleClick's U.S. operations.
An immediate task we'll undertake over the next few weeks is matching and aligning DoubleClick employees with our organization plan for the business, said Google.
As with most mergers, there may be reductions in headcount. We expect these to take place in the U.S. and possibly in other regions as well, added Google.
Google will make consultations with employee organizations outside the United States, on the potential job reductions, in line with local laws.
DoubleClick, a pioneer in the field of Web advertising, had its headquarters in New York, in the same office with Google's local offices, and has 1,500 employees.
Google completed the acquisition of the technology firm today.
