Broadcom boss 'will beat Trump deal block'

With this in mind, analysts have said a deal between Qualcomm and Broadcom could have given Huawei the chance to take over the top spot in years to come - a situation U.S. politicians wanted to prevent given their ongoing security concerns around Chinese telecom firms doing business with U.S. carriers.

Being based in the United States as opposed to Singapore will allow Broadcom to make what it believes will be acquisitions of USA companies that will not fall within the jurisdiction of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which scrutinizes deals for potential national security concerns.

Qualcomm has emerged as one of the biggest competitors to China's Huawei Technologies Co in the sector, making Qualcomm a prized asset. He added that it "is not meant to make any other statement about Broadcom or its employees, including its thousands of hard working and highly skilled USA employees". There were concerns the takeover could have led to China pulling ahead in the development of 5G wireless technology. CFIUS said such a move could weaken Qualcomm - and thereby the US - against foreign rivals racing to develop next-generation wireless technology known as 5G, such as China's Huawei Technologies Co.

But unlike with its steel tariffs, the Administration's national-security concerns in this case are legitimate. CFIUS had told lawyers for the companies in a letter dated Sunday that Broadcom had repeatedly violated its order to provide the panel with five days' notice before taking any action on its redomiciliation plan.

The move had little precedent. The committee also said that the technology of Qualcomm-which makes wireless chips and licenses wireless patents crucial to smartphones and other-was too important to put into the hands of a foreign company with links to China.
