Broadcom has confirmed that it intends to proceed with its attempt at executing a hostile takeover of larger rival Qualcomm following the latter's refusal to sign an acquisition deal, its last-ditch effort before abandoning its pursuit of the company.
"We met with representatives of Broadcom for two hours earlier today, and listened carefully to what they had to say".
Broadcom said it would withdraw its offer if it was not accepted by Qualcomm's executives or unless its six nominees were elected at the shareholder meeting.
Qualcomm's shareholders are scheduled to vote for either Broadcom's candidates or Qualcomm's existing board by its annual shareholder meeting on March 6.
Broadcom's proposed directors are Samih Elhage, David Golden, Veronica Hagen, Julie Hill, John Kispert and Harry You.
