A month ago, NVIDIA and arm agreed to buy Softbank for $40 billion.
Although this transaction can be the largest acquisition in the history of semiconductor, it is shrouded in shadow because of the wide range of interests involved.
British executives are reportedly considering asking the competition and market authority to investigate the deal, setting the stage for a potential veto.
According to the report, a British spokesman said,Arm is an important British high-tech enterprise. The acquisition case is of great importance. We will further investigate and take necessary actions.
In fact, arm has already been in the hands of the Japanese, and the UK's concern should still be on employment, because NVIDIA and arm have GPU business conflicts, and there are rumors that the Mali graphics business may be dissolved, although both arm and NVIDIA deny this.
In addition, Softbank promised to double the number of UK arm employees by 2021, but there are still 490 vacancies, which is twice the number of regular recruitment in the year.
