A US national security panel's unusual decision to review Singapore-based Broadcom Ltd's $117 billion hostile bid for smartphone chipmaker Qualcomm Ltd illustrates an expanding focus on the competitiveness of the USA semiconductor industry amid advances by China, regulatory experts said.
Qualcomm has pushed a crucial shareholder vote scheduled for March 6 back by 30 days as a result of the national security review. On March 4, 2018, the U.S. Department of Treasury ("Treasury") filed an agency notice pursuant to 31 C.F.R. § 800.401 (c), broadening the scope of review to cover the. proposed hostile takeover of Qualcomm.
The Treasury Department laid out its concerns in a letter to both chipmakers explaining its Sunday order to delay Qualcomm's annual shareholder meeting. According to the Financial Times, Broadcom, which was a US company before acquisition by Singapore's Avago Technologies, has cooperated with Huawei for long and USA politicians are concerned about this fact.
An investigation by the CFIUS into a deal that has been proposed, but not yet completed, is highly unusual, and underscores the US' concerns about maintaining its dominance in semiconductors in the face of advances by China. It lends weight to Qualcomm's argument that the hostile bid would struggle to get regulatory sign-off. It's not clear how long this full investigation will take but the smart money surely has to be on the whole thing being called off before long.
The letter raised red flags about a Broadcom takeover possibly weakening Qualcomm long-term competitiveness in telecommunications technologies and standard setting - opening the door for Chinese companies such as Huawei to become dominant players in upcoming 5G networks. This follows news that the USA government is investigating the company's proposed takeover for national security concerns. Broadcom, a Singaporean semiconductor company, was planning to acquire Qualcomm by appointing six new board members at the meeting.
