Newsbrief: Angry Birds developer Rovio has completed a round of layoffs that it first announced in October, cutting an estimated 110 positions and closing its office in Tampere, Finland. The company claims it had initially expected to eliminate 130 positions (or roughly 16 percent of its workforce) as part of the restructuring, but during the process it wound up creating a number of new positions that, if filled by departing staff, will bring the total number of layoffs down to 110. Going forward, the responsibilities of the Tampere office will be handled by Rovio's headquarters in Espoo. Rovio saw its profits reduced by half in 2013 during what company representatives described as a "foundation-building" period.
