Broadcom Monday made its latest bid for the acquisition of Qualcomm, with its offer standing at a staggering USD 105 billion, which is a mixture of cash and stock. The Broadcom+Qualcomm combine would become the world's third largest chipmaker, behind Intel and Samsung Electronics. Besides an undisclosed proportion of the bid being in cash, the company offered stock at $70 per share, which is a 28 percent premium over the stock's closing price on Monday. If it goes through, the Broadcom+Qualcomm deal would be the largest tech acquisition, dwarfing the $67 billion acquisition of EMC by Dell, in 2015.

So Broadcom was acquired by Avago Technologies in 2016 for 37 billions, and 1 year later they want to buy Qualcomm for 105 billions...
Yes. Broadcom/Avago also bought out LSI (storage IP), and PLX (PCIe and infiniband IP). After Qualcomm, they'll be in a position to make a 100% in-house high-performance server architecture from scratch.

Don't forget that Qualcomm also owns Atheros. What's next? Mediatek?
That'll be almost all major players in embedded/wireless market.

MediaTek is Taiwanese. It's practically impossibru to acquire Taiwanese companies lock stock and barrel.
