Qualcomm Ends Bid To Acquire NXP – Ships 220 Million Chips This Past Quarter

Posted by at 10:17 am on July 26, 2018

Qualcomm has announced it will drop its plans to purchase NXP, which is when the acquisition agreement expires.

Qualcomm first announced its intent to buy NXP, which makes semiconductors, in October 2016. Qualcomm has been awaiting approval from China’s antitrust regulators and thus far not received it. When the agreement expires tonight, Qualcomm will find itself on the hook for a $2 billion termination fee. The original deal was valued at about $44 billion.

The Chinese government hasn’t said why it refused to approve the deal. May Think the current rump Trade war with China has an effect on the deal not happening.

In its most recent financial quarter, Qualcomm raked in $5.6 billion in revenue. The company says it shipped 220 million chips and generated $1.2 billion in net income.
