Broadcom's plan to move its home address to the US from Singapore would free its $5.5 billion deal for USA network provider Brocade Communications Systems from a review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. Qualcomm is looking to complete a $40 billion acquisition of NXP Semiconductors, while Broadcom has a $5.5 billion offer for Brocade Communications that it is waiting to complete.

A Qualcomm spokeswoman declined to comment.

Formerly known as Avago Technologies, Broadcom Limited was created a year ago after Singapore-based Avago acquired Broadcom Corporation for $37 billion. The Wall Street Journal quickly confirmed the news in its own report. Apple, in suing Qualcomm, thinks the company is nonetheless overcharging for use industry standard patents, which the law requires be licensed out on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (or "FRAND") terms. Qualcomm's shares soared 12.71% on the rumor, or $6.97, to $61.81. The deal is facing regulatory scrutiny in Europe and opposition from some shareholders including activist hedge fund firm Elliott Management Corp., which has argued the offer undervalues NXP. Based on 2016 revenue, the enlarged company would be the world's third largest chipmaker behind Intel Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. and give it a huge swath of the supply chain of vital phone components such as Wi-Fi and cellular modem chips.
