Apple supplier Qualcomm confirms takeover approach by rival Broadcom
07 November, 2017, 01:37 | Author: Gladys Mathis
Broadcom president and CEO Hock Tan called the proposal "compelling for stockholders and stakeholders in both companies", and claims a deal would position the combined company as "a global communications leader". That marks a 27.6% premium over Qualcomm's stock closing price ($54.84) on 2 November. Including debt, Broadcom's bid values the transaction at $130 billion.
First reported by Bloomberg, Broadcom is said to be readying an assault on publicly listed Qualcomm and planning to offer shareholders $70 a share.
Perhaps the most important new news on the bid is that Qualcomm is expected to reject this deal as it undervalues the company. The combined Broadcom and Qualcomm, including NXP, will have pro forma fiscal 2017 revenues of approximately $51 billion and pro forma 2017 EBITDA of approximately $23 billion, including synergies.
On Monday, Qualcomm's shares were up 3 percent at $63.71 in morning trading, suggesting that investors were skeptical a deal would happen.
Broadcom, Qualcomm and NXP together would have control over modems, Wi-Fi, GPS and near-field communications chips, a strong position that could concern customers such as Apple and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd because of the bargaining power such a combined company could have to raise prices.
