It's been an extremely busy couple of months for both Qualcomm and Broadcom, as the latter continues to pursue a hostile takeover.
Qualcomm did not deny seeking a CFIUS review but accused Broadcom of using misleading rhetoric "to trivialize and ignore serious regulatory and national security issues". The recent move by the US government means that Qualcomm will have to wait until next month to hold a key shareholders' meeting.
The announcement comes a day after the USA put the hostile takeover on hold, saying that Broadcomcould jeopardize national security by threatening Qualcomm's technological leadership. But the Treasury Department expects Broadcom to scale back on long-term investment, including in R&D, if the acquisition goes through. The attorney believes that the letter from the U.S. Treasury spells the end of Broadcom's bid for now. If the takeover succeeds, Broadcom pledged to maintain the R&D resources Qualcomm devotes to 5G and innovation in future wireless standards and focus the R&D spend on "those critical technologies that are essential to the US". 6, a move it has argued should not make it subject to a review on national security concerns. Broadcom has launched an unsolicited effort to acquire Qualcomm for approximately $117 billion. Instead the CFIUS's unease hinges on Qualcomm being a national champion in the areas of standard-setting and chip R&D and the apparent concern that it would be diminished in this respect once in the suffocating embrace of Broadcom.
The semiconductor industry is locked in a race to develop chips that power so-called 5G wireless technology, allowing the transmission of data at faster speeds.
U.S. Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, as well as San Diego Congressmen Scott Peters, D-San Diego, and Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, sent letters to Trump Administration officials requesting a CFIUS review.
The United States Department of the Treasury said that the CFIUS now can look into Broadcom's acquisition plan in depth. But the day before, Qualcomm said the vote had to be put on hold; a government committee led by the US Treasury Secretary needed time to investigate a potential merger.
CFIUS's ability to intervene in the merger could disappear if Broadcom moves its headquarters to the USA, as it promised to do at a public White House ceremonyin November.
