In talks over the weekend at the G20 summit, Chinese President Xi Jinping said his administration would revisit the antitrust matter of Qualcomm buying NXP if it were presented again. With NXP being the biggest supplier to the industry, Qualcomm could be forced to reopen the deal amidst a grim outlook for the mobile chip industry in the coming months.
The American chip manufacturer Qualcomm no longer sees any salvation in an acquisition of its Eindhoven-based industry partner NXP. The email declared that though the company is grateful for the reconsideration and the comments, the deadline for the transaction has expired and hence the contemplated deal has been terminated.
China's foreign ministry declined to comment on Qualcomm during a regular media briefing on Monday. "If at the end of this period of time (90 days), the parties are unable to reach an agreement, the 10% tariffs will be raised to 25%", the statement said. In July, Qualcomm paid NXP $2 billion to completely terminate the planned merger.
