A week ago Qualcomm leaders met with Broadcom to discuss the $121 billion acquisition offer. While the results of the meeting were not announced publicly, Broadcom has a new offer - $117 billion. Wait, what?
The reason is that Qualcomm increased its offer for the acquisition of NXP to $44 billion. The major shareholders of NXP support this new deal and it’s almost approved by 8 out of 9 regulatory bodies. Broadcom’s leadership was less happy about this development.
