Broadcom has made what it says is its 'best and final' bid to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Qualcomm Incorporated. The deal would see Qualcomm stockholders receive an aggregate of $82.00 per each Qualcomm share, consisting of $60.00 in cash and the remainder in Broadcom shares.
Proposal is not in the Best Interests of Shareholders and Dramatically Undervalues Qualcomm
SAN DIEGO, CA – Qualcomm products mentioned within this press release are offered by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.
Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) (“Qualcomm” or the “Company”) today announced that its Board of Directors unanimously rejected the unsolicited proposal announced by Broadcom Limited (“Broadcom”) on November 6, 2017.
Broadcom has announced a proposal to acquire mobile chip maker Qualcomm in a deal valued at $130 billion, including $25 billion of debt, which - if completed - could be a technology takeover for the record books.
UPDATE: 13 / 11 / 2017 - Qualcomm's board of directors has unanimously rejected Broadcom's proposal.
Semiconductor company Broadcom has unveiled a new generation of gearbox PHY IC devices, the BCM82332, BCM82793 and BCM82864, designed for modern data centre and enterprise networking applications.
With the general availability of switch chips that have flexible, multi-speed port interfaces supporting 10G, 40G, 100G and emerging Ethernet speeds, new gearbox PHY solutions are needed to ensure robust signal integrity and optimise port adaption.
Broadcom Corporation, a provider of semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, has announced a line of high-speed 4-level Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM-4) Physical Layer transceivers (PHYs). The new PAM-4 PHYs enable transmission rates of 40/50 gigabits per second (Gb/s) serially over multiple physical media, including direct attach cables (DAC) and optical fibre.
