Qualcomm and Broadcom finally meet over $121B acquisition offer

Broadcom Scales Back Qualcomm Board Challenge to Simple Majority

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.

Broadcom, which makes connectivity chips used in products ranging from mobile phones to servers, first approached Qualcomm in November. San Diego-based Qualcomm primarily licenses its technology for the delivery of broadband and data, a business that would significantly benefit from the rollout of 5G wireless technology.

Tyra Banks surprises Sports Illustrated cover girl with awesome ANTM-style reveal
Danielle Herrington has only been on the modeling scene a short while, and already she's making waves in a major way. Prior to hitting the red carpet with Herrington, Banks shared a sweet message for the cover girl on Instagram .

It said two customers who provide more than $1 billion in chip revenue had said they would likely move designs away from Qualcomm if the deal went through, citing a lack of confidence in Broadcom's ability to continue to lead in technology.

It has warned that regulators could take more than 18 months to approve the deal, and may never do so. However, the increased price, and Qualcomm's continuing difficulties with Apple and other legal challenges, may tip the balance in favor of Broadcom.

The meeting came after Qualcomm rejected Broadcom's revised cash-and-stock bid of $82 per share last week and said the new offer still undervalued it and fell well short of the firm commitments on regulatory issues it expected.

Qualcomm has continued to balk at Broadcom's overtures, saying the $82-a-share offer still undervalues the company.

Broadcom said it will pay Qualcomm $8 billion if the deal fails to win regulatory approval.
