Broadcom recently raised its offer to $82 a share for Qualcomm. On Tuesday, Broadcom released a detailed presentation making the case for Qualcomm, which is also trying to close the purchase of NXP.
Qualcomm said in a statement:
We met with representatives of Broadcom for two hours earlier today, and listened carefully to what they had to say. The Qualcomm Board will promptly meet to discuss the meeting and to determine next steps.
With large shareholders interested in the Broadcom proposal, Qualcomm appears to be a bit more receptive. Simply put, Qualcomm has thawed a bit to Broadcom's overture.
