(By Balachander) Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) did not acquire ICOA Inc., a provider of Wi-Fi to high-traffic public locations, according to ICOA.

Early Monday, an online press release claimed that Google has acquired ICOA Inc. for $400 million in a move to further strengthen its companies portfolio.

The release on PR Web claiming Google had acquired ICOA for $400 million "is false.", the Wall Street Journal reported quoting Erwin Vahlsing, Jr., ICOA's chief financial officer.

"It's a false release," Vahlsing told The Register. "The SEC has been notified."

ICOA has never had any discussions with potential acquirers, CEO George Strouthopoulos said. "Someone, I guess a stock promoter with a dubious interest, is disseminating wrong, false and misleading info in the PR circles."

Sources at Google also denied reports of such a deal, AllThingsD reported.
