NXP Gets Regulatory Approvals to Complete Acquisition of Marvell’s Wireless Connectivity Assets

NXP Semiconductors and Marvell have announced that all necessary regulatory approvals have been received for the acquisition of Marvell’s wireless connectivity portfolio by NXP. The companies expect to close the transaction in December 2019.

Marvell’s world-class engineering team and industry-leading connectivity product set, especially the disruptive Wi-Fi 6 portfolio, will immediately complement NXP’s processing, security, and connectivity offerings in the Industrial & IoT, as well as in the Automotive and Communication Infrastructure markets.

In May 2019, NXP agreed to acquire Marvell’s wireless connectivity portfolio in an all-cash, asset transaction. The acquisition will enable NXP to deliver complete, scalable processing and connectivity solutions to its customers across its end markets, including tailored security and a full suite of wireless connectivity spanning Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy, Zigbee, Thread and Near Field Communications (NFC). The acquisition includes nearly 600 people worldwide and is expected to be accretive to NXP’s non-GAAP operating profit in the first full quarter after the transaction closes.

Marvell first revolutionized the digital storage industry by moving information at speeds never thought possible. Today, that same breakthrough innovation remains at the heart of the company's storage, processing, networking, security and connectivity solutions. With leading intellectual property and deep system-level knowledge, Marvell's semiconductor solutions continue to transform the enterprise, cloud, automotive, industrial and consumer markets.
