Broadcom also hopes they can appoint a Qualcomm board member. If the shareholders agree with this offer, they can vote for new board members and force Qualcomm to engage in negotiations.
Neither Qualcomm nor Broadcom has offered comment on this report. However, no wonder if Qualcomm can defend itself and refuse this acquisition.
They know they have some important assets. Their Snapdragon processors are very popular in the smartphone industry and they also have names in the wireless infrastructure industry.
