NVIDIA's acquisition of arm has become an established fact. The $40 billion acquisition is not only the largest in the semiconductor market in recent years, but also possibly the most profound.
To complete the acquisition, NVIDIA still needs to obtain legal approval from several key markets, among which neither the United States nor the European Union will have or have major problems, but in the Chinese market, it may be difficult to obtain approval.
the other day,Ni Guangnan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of engineering, also talked about the acquisition at a meeting,If the M & A is successful, it will definitely be very unfavorable to us. Therefore, I believe that the Ministry of Commerce may decide whether this merger or acquisition will be carried outI don't know if it can be acquired. All in all, ARM we can't use it very comfortably in the future.
Ni Guangnan's statement is still a personal opinion, not the view of the regulatory authorities. NVIDIA's acquisition of arm has not yet reached the specific review stage,So it's a long way from the official position.
However, Ni Guangnan's statement has been reported by many foreign media, believing that NVIDIA will face difficulties in acquiring arm. We all know the reason. If it was a few years ago, this case would be a simple business cooperation, but now it will involve geopolitical and technological disputes, which is complex and sensitive.
With regard to passing China's review,NVIDIA was full of confidence beforeHuang has hinted that he will get the license, but NVIDIA has not released the details.
Before the acquisition of arm,NVIDIA also bought mellanox for $7 billion last yearAlthough there are also objections in China, the Chinese regulatory authorities have finally approved the approval and attached strict conditions.
