Market regulators shouldn't allow Qualcomm to buy NXP Semi! It will leader to Patent monopole on NFC technologie!
As it becomes a standard essentiel Patent on paying technologie, monopole will be a catastrophe for competitors!
Yuri84, 21 Feb 2018Qualcomm, broadcom, San Diego company... you made a mess with names there. Maybe, while readin... moreI'll clear the mess in a short tl;dr message:
Qualcomm-> NXP for 47b total (37b offer+10b existing debt.).
qualcomm raises price for offer by 7b from 37b to 44b totalling price to 54b.
in meanwhile: Broadcomm-> Qualcomm for 121b still hangs in air.
qualcomm passed 8/9 permissions. with china's being last.
arrows mean "wants to buy".
and "the san diego company=Qualcomm.
Qualcom wants to buy NXP for 44 Billions, while Broadcom made a hostile takeover to buy Qualcom itself for 121 Billions : quite simple really Yuri, ain't nothing confusing whatsoever
Qualcomm, broadcom, San Diego company... you made a mess with names there. Maybe, while reading, you found out which one was San Diego company, but you absolutely failed to deliver this information to readers, and it seems now there is a third company in the news (or fourth) - the San Diego Company...
Currently this is a mess - it's hard to tell who wants to purchase who and how much is offered. Numbers are also a mess: one company offers $47 billion for a takeover, another offers $120 billion for the same takeover, so the first company ups (!) the offer to a lower (!) amount of $44 billion....?!
Please do a better job in delivering complex information in simple terms. Or simply skip it - the only "news worthy" news in this field would be either Apple buying Samsung, or Samsung buying Apple. Or Apple buying USA. Or Huawei buying everyone else - that'd be the biggest surprise.
