Intel eyes acquisitions to fend off expanding chip foes


The paper also speculated that Intel's acquisition plans around Broadcom could be motivated by its fears of the major market player a Broadcom-Qualcomm merger would create.

Chip giant Intel (INTC) is concerned about the competitive implications of a Broadcom-Qualcomm combination and is weighing options for possible mergers and acquisitions, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday. However, a company spokeswoman said it was still focusing on integrating two previous acquisitions, Mobileye and Altera, into Intel's business.

In this context, the Wall Street Journal said that Intel's plan is to block Broadcom from acquiring Qualcomm. Intel, though, sees its counterpart's focus in the lucrative 5G field as a boon in the waiting.

Moving back to the United States was something Broadcom CEO Hock Tan promised President Donald Trump during an Oval Office meeting on 2 November 2017. On Friday, the company announced that it would move up a shareholder vote on the move to March 23 from May 6. Broadcom hopes to replace the majority of the board's members to help it succeed in its acquisition attempt, while Qualcomm has made moves to maintain its board's independence. The nation's Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) is still reviewing the acquisition, and recent moves by the USA government to impose trade tarrifs on Chinese steel and aluminum could complicate matters.
