NVIDIA announced last year that it would spend US $40 billion (about 270 billion yuan) to acquire arm, which was originally a good move for them to expand their market influence,But now it has aroused more and more opposition。 China's review is still in progress, and the EU is also worried after the UK expressed concern about the transaction.
The latest news shows that the EU will launch a formal investigation into NVIDIA's plan to acquire British chip manufacturer arm for us $54 billion early next month.
The EU has not yet made a decision on whether to approve the transaction, which will take a long time,However, their attitude is self-evident. They are also worried that NVIDIA's acquisition of arm will stifle market innovation and reduce competition.
For the concerns of the EU, NVIDIA now said it would solve all the concerns of the EU, but they did not know how to solve this problem.
NVIDIA spokesman said that the acquisition of arm is conducive to arm and authorized licensors, market competition and the whole industry. NVIDIA will cooperate with the EU through regulatory procedures to solve any problems.
In addition, NVIDIA also stressed that the acquisition of arm has been supported by some companies, including semiconductor giants such as MediaTek, Marvell and Broadcom.
In conclusion, NVIDIA expressed its willingness to make concessions to cooperate with the supervision to complete all investigations.
