NVIDIA and ARM, the acquisition skips? The company will have to pay a penalty of 1.25 billion

NVIDIA’s acquisition of ARM appears to have gone awry, and that being the case, the company will have to pay a $ 1.25 billion fine to SoftBank.

NVIDIA seems to have renounced the acquisition of ARM , the chip manufacturer currently owned by the Japanese SoftBank: if the rumors turn out to be true, the company would have to pay a penalty of 1.25 billion dollars .

NVIDIA and ARM were supposed to define the future of semiconductors , as part of a $ 40 billion operation , but apparently too many obstacles have sprung up along a path that immediately proved torturous.

The biggest challenge, however, was obtaining an approval for the acquisition – that’s where the most important game was played and it would seem that NVIDIA has not been able to achieve the goal it had set itself.

Pending the official announcement of the news, the negative outcome of the acquisition could certainly be considered a serious misstep. Moreover, the sum of 1.25 billion dollars has already been paid to SoftBank as an advance in anticipation of an agreement that could be successful.

Therefore, we will not see the birth of a major pole in the semiconductor market and perhaps we will also have to give up the idea of ​​a more solid and stable market compared to crises such as the one that hit the sector since the beginning of the pandemic.
