Finally, Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ:BRCM), ended its last trade with -0.37% loss, and closed at $53.33, after the European Commission approved the companys acquisition by Avago Technologies (AVGO).

Singaporean semiconductor company Avago is buying Broadcom, a rival chip-making company based in Irvine, CA, for $37 billion. If the deal goes through, the combined company would be the third-largest chip-maker in the world, Reuters stated.

The European Commission determined that the merged entity would continue to face effective competition in Europe, the regulatory group said in a statement recently.

The Commission had some concerns about the vertical relationship created by the transaction, since Avago supplies certain intellectual property to some of Broadcoms competitors, the statement said. The Commissions concern was that after the takeover Avago could have had an incentive to withhold this intellectual property in order to extend the merged entitys leading market position in the so-called switch chips market.

In response, Avago said it will enter into commercial agreements with other manufacturers to ensure that they will have access to intellectual property on reasonable terms.

Thanks to very good cooperation with the companies the Commission has been able to approve this multi-billion dollar takeover within a very short space of time while preserving effective competition in this crucial high-technology sector, European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in a statement.
