Broadcom's VMware Deal Draws More Regulatory Attention

  • Britain's competition regulator said it examined whether U.S. chipmaker Broadcom Inc's (NASDAQ: AVGO) $61 billion acquisition of cloud computing company VMware Inc (NYSE: VMW) could perpetrate anticompetitive repercussions.

  • The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) invited comments from interested parties by December 6 to help it formally assess whether to launch an investigation into the Broadcom-VMware deal.

  • The Broadcom-VMware deal marks Broadcom's attempt to diversify its business into enterprise software.

  • The companies also sought European Union antitrust approval.

  • Tech deals drew intense scrutiny from regulators worldwide on concerns of too much market power in the hands of a few and the possibility of more prominent companies acquiring startups only to shut them down.

  • The CMA had ordered Meta Platform Inc (NASDAQ: META) to dump the takeover of Giphy as it could limit other social media platforms' access to GIFs, making those sites less attractive to users and less competitive.

  • Nvidia Corp's (NASDAQ: NVDA) deal to scoop British chip designer Softbank Group Corp (OTC: SFTBF) (OTC: SFTBY) Arm Ltd collapsed after regulatory opposition.

  • Price Action: AVGO shares closed higher by 0.6% at $515.16 on Friday.
