Don't think the Govt can stop the bid, and it would appear they approve of it anyway. Just (quickly) glanced through Motley Fool arm Board (100 odd messages) - no mention of separate US or Far East offer but I still see no reason why they should not. Mostly -ve sentiment. As I said before, if there is a bidding War could see �30, but probably wishful thinking. Bol
IoT (phrase invented by arm!) IS the next big thing in Computing. Don't know if this 5th Gen/ 6th Gen or whatever. One thing is consistent is that the next Gen is always bigger than the last.
So, Microsoft, Apple, Google, IBM, Intel & Qualcom ... would all love to get hold of Arm yet it was a small Jap coy with loads of Debt that put in the offer.
That is not a bad thing in that arm will remain independent - the rest are all competitors. I don't think there is anyway the Jap can stop counter offers and the Big Players are just preparing their Bids. ie Price now 1678, guaranteed 1700, winning Bid could be double this.
If you hold this coy, Hold (Buy?), and take Selfies as your grin grows!
Stuart Chambers is playing you all like a piano...he did the same thing to another great British Company called Pilkington Glass, sold it to, guess who? The Japanese of course.. The fact that he will make nearly £700 thousand is a mere inconvenient fact....SoftBank has a rumoured £76 billion debt...there is no sentiment in business or the British Crown Jewels.
