Deal of the Week: Over and Out

(Bloomberg) -- In the final episode of Deal of the Week, Ed Hammond is joined by Bloomberg Gadfly columnist Brooke Sutherland and Ian King to talk about the fallout from the US government’s unexpected decision to review Broadcom’s attempted takeover of rival semiconductor maker Qualcomm on national security grounds. The trio discuss the contrasting cultures of the two tech giants and ask the question of which company is more likely to keep the US at the forefront of the 5G revolution. Finally, they try to predict how Qualcomm’s shareholders are likely to vote if the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States ever gives them the chance.
