Broadcom Ltd., the Singapore-based company that spent much of the past four months attempting to acquire fellow chip maker Qualcomm Inc., on Thursday said quarterly profit surged as it booked a one-time benefit of almost $6 billion tied to the USA tax overhaul.

Audi to build four-door electric sports vehicle in 2020
It seems like you're just not cool in Europe anymore unless you are working on developing an electric sports vehicle of some kind. The new E-Tron will be built at Audi's Bollinger Hofe facility near Neckarsulm, Germany, where the R8 supercar now resides.
In an attempt to ease those worries, Broadcom last week pledged to make the USA a leader in the race to build 5G networks, saying it would create a $1.5 billion fund to support the effort if took control of Qualcomm.
Qualcomm had come up with many pretty wild arguments against the deal, but it never landed on the one proffered by CFIUS-a lack of R&D for 5G could give Huawei an edge to dominate the 5G world, threatening US national security.
Wednesday's move is a formality since the presidential order issued Monday had ensured the deal would be killed in any United States regulatory review.

Led by Tan, a US-educated Malaysian entrepreneur, Broadcom grew largely through acquisitions. Broadcom will continue to move forward with its redomiciliation process and will hold its Special Meeting of Stockholders as planned on March 23, 2018.
