"The bottom line is that a combined, American Broadcom-Qualcomm will be a more focused and stronger champion for sustained United States leadership in 5G than a standalone Qualcomm, an outcome that strongly supports America's national security interests", Broadcom stated in its letter.
Qualcomm will hold a vote for its investors to decide on Broadcom's nominations to its board on the 5th April, which will also serve as a referendum on an offer that is worth $117 billion (around £84bn).
