    Qualcomm says new Broadcom bid 'made an inadequate offer even worse'

    Qualcomm Inc. criticized Broadcom Ltd.'s revised takeover offer on Wednesday afternoon, after Broadcom lowered its bid earlier in the day. "Broadcom's reduced proposal has made an inadequate offer even worse despite the clear increase in value to Qualcomm stockholders from providing certainty around the NXP acquisition," the company said in a release. "Broadcom has refused and continues to refuse to engage with Qualcomm on price." Broadcom previously was offering $60 per share in cash and $22 in Broadcom stock, but the company announced early Wednesday that it would be lowering that to $57 a share in cash and $22 in stock, following Qualcomm's decision to raise its bid for NXP Semiconductors NV . Broadcom noted that the original offer would stand if Qualcomm's NXP deal were not to go through. Qualcomm said that the acquisition of NXP would be 40% accretive to its adjusted numbers and "accelerate our growth strategy." Broadcom shares are up 1.2% in Wednesday trading, while Qualcomm shares are down 0.5% and the S&P 500 Index is up 0.7%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
