US Government blocks Broadcom's bid to takeover Qualcomm
16 March 2018, 01:08 | Clyde Nash
Broadcom was trying to acquire Qualcomm in a $117-billion deal
There were concerns the takeover could have led to China pulling ahead in the development of 5G wireless technology. It also comes just days after Trump imposed hefty tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum.
Scott Peters, a Democrat who represents the 52nd congressional district that includes northern San Diego, also opposed the deal because of concerns about national security and US competitiveness in wireless technology.
Shares of Qualcomm slid more than 4 percent in early trading Tuesday.
The order says there is credible evidence that Broadcom, through exercising control of Qualcomm, "might take action that threatens to impair the national security of the United States".
$4000 3D Printed Homes for Those Who Lack Shelter The home was presented very recently, in March 2018, in Austin, Texas, and the printer is now packaged for the developing world. ICON has built up a technique for 3D-printing of a solitary story 650-square-foot house out of cement in only 12 to 24 hours .
While initially founded in the US, Broadcom reincorporated in Singapore in 2016 after it was sold to Avago.
But Trump's order put a clear hold on that strategy.
Part of a war:DealBook notes that the dropped deal could place Qualcomm in the midst of fierce governmental protectionism.
"Although we are disappointed with this outcome, Broadcom will comply", the company said in a statement Wednesday, bringing to an official end a months-long battle to land the technology industry's biggest ever deal. The company has "active sole source classified prime contracts" with the Pentagon, according to a letter from Treasury. Underscoring the risks it saw in the deal, CFIUS intervened in the middle of a proxy fight rather than waiting for a formal purchase agreement. "Qualcomm and to some degree Cisco are the last two that keep the United States in the game when it comes to telecom, and we don't want to lose them", he said.
This would likely help Chinese competitors such as telecommunications firm Huawei, particularly in the emerging 5G blazing fast wireless internet, where a stronger China could present a national security issue.
"If there's not a trusted domestic supplier of chips, everyone will have to go to a Huawei, or [another] foreign supplier", said Brian Fleming, an attorney at Miller & Chevalier who worked in the Justice Department's national security division under both Trump and former President Barack Obama.
