Broadcom nomme 11 administrateurs pour élection à l'assemblée annuelle 2018 de Qualcomm

Broadcom Limited today announced that it has notified Qualcomm Incorporated of its intention to nominate a slate of 11 independent, highly qualified individuals for election to Qualcomm's Board of Directors and to propose certain other matters for the consideration of Qualcomm stockholders at Qualcomm's 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Broadcom intends to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission a proxy statement, accompanied by a BLUE proxy card, in connection with Qualcomm's 2018 Annual Meeting. Qualcomm has announced that its 2018 Annual Meeting will be held on March 6, 2018.

Le 6 novembre 2017, Broadcom a proposé d'acquérir toutes les actions en circulation de Qualcomm pour une contrepartie par action de 70,00 $ en espèces et en actions, soit 60,00 $ en espèces et 10,00 $ en actions Broadcom. L'offre de Broadcom représente une prime de 28% par rapport au cours de clôture des actions ordinaires de Qualcomm le 2 novembre 2017, le dernier jour de bourse non affecté avant la spéculation des médias concernant une transaction potentielle, et une prime de 33% par rapport au volume pondéré de 30 jours non affecté de Qualcomm prix moyen. La proposition de Broadcom signifie que l'acquisition en cours de Qualcomm de NXP Semiconductors N.V. (`` NXP '') est réalisée selon les conditions actuellement divulguées de 110 $ par action NXP ou est résiliée. Hock Tan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Broadcom, stated, 'We have heard from many Qualcomm stockholders who have expressed their desire for Qualcomm to engage with us. We also continue to receive positive feedback from customers and, having had initial meetings with certain relevant antitrust authorities, remain confident that any regulatory requirements necessary to complete a combination will be met in a timely manner. Although we are taking this step, it remains our strong preference to engage in a constructive dialogue with Qualcomm. We have repeatedly attempted to engage with Qualcomm, and despite stockholder and customer support for the transaction, Qualcomm has ignored those opportunities. The nominations give Qualcomm stockholders an opportunity to voice their disappointment with Qualcomm's directors and their refusal to engage in discussions with us. In light of the significant value our proposal provides for Qualcomm stockholders, we believe Qualcomm stockholders would be better served by new independent, highly qualified nominees who are committed to maximizing value and acting in the best interests of Qualcomm stockholders.'
