why broadcom's $130 billion qualcomm deal would be bad for mobile innovation

We spend a lot more time talking about Qualcomm on this site than Broadcom, but the two companies share a considerable amount of space within the smartphones, tablets, and other IoT products that we use today. Broadcom designs most of the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC chips inside our devices, while Qualcomm dominates the mobile CPU, GPU and wireless modem space, especially in North America.That's why Broadcom's bid to purchase Qualcomm for $130 billion ($105 billion in stock and $25 billion in assumed debt) would be such a blockbuster for the chipmaker, and for the semiconductor business in general. Broadcom Inc., as it stands today, is actually a conglomeration of a number of different companies after Avago Technologies Ltd. bought Broadcom Corp. in 2016 for $37 billion. Since then, Broadcom

broadcom is trying to take over qualcomm in $130 billion mega-deal

It’s official: Broadcom has made an unsolicited offer to buy Qualcomm for $130 billion, confirming rumors from last week.If the deal goes through – and that’s a big if – it would be the largest acquisition of a technology company in history.

Broadcom has indicated that it’s willing to complete that deal.$130 billion might not be enough for what is essentially a hostile takeoverBroadcom, in its current incarnation, is the result of the 2016 acquisition of Broadcom Corporation by Singapore-based Avago Technologies. The company, which has a major presence

broadcom officially offers bid for qualcomm for $130 billion

Andrew Myrick Nov 6th, 2017On Friday, a report from Bloomberg surfaced which suggested that Broadcom was considering a buyout offer of $100 billion for Qualcomm. Unlike the T-Mobile/Sprint saga, the reports have stopped as Broadcom has made the offer official.The specifics of the offer include a bid to purchase Qualcomm for $130 billion which works out to a $70 per share valuation, but there may be a bit of a roadblock. Qualcomm is said to be recommending that its shareholders reject the offer stating that the purchase would get held up by regulators. If it were to go through today, shareholders would receive a 30% premium over the current stock prices.This may seem like a deal coming out of left field, but the last few months have not been kind to Qualcomm.
