There is absolutely no way Qualcomm will agree to a sale at a reduced price after inching closer to its own NXP acquisition, deemed an obvious value enhancer.
Broadcom's recent "best and final offer" for a record-breaking Qualcomm takeover was not final after all, but it may well have been the best the potential seller will ever see.
Qualcomm may well kill two birds with one stone by offering NXP more cash for a long-in-the-making acquisition, also keeping potential buyer Broadcom at bay.
They say Qualcomm's management is opposed to any Broadcom deal right now, but $130 billion sounds like an offer the semiconductor giant can't refuse.
Intel, meet your match: a combined Qualcomm - NXP Semiconductors company worth at least $133 billion, looking at $30B annual revenues.
