MAXLINEAR ($NASDAQ:MXL): MaxLinear Inc. is a publicly traded semiconductor company headquartered in Carlsbad, California. The company designs, develops, and markets radio frequency, analog, mixed signal and digital signal processing integrated circuits for the broadband communications and data center, networking and consumer electronics industries. Silicon Motion categorically rejected MaxLinear’s attempt to terminate the agreement to merge the two companies. This statement came in the form of a letter on Monday. The deal was supposed to bring the two companies together and create a global leader in communication ICs and solutions. Silicon Motion believes that MaxLinear’s decision to terminate the deal is unjustified and does not align with the interests of its shareholders.

Silicon Motion also stated that it will take “all available actions” to protect its rights, including legal action. MaxLinear then responded by saying that they believe Silicon Motion’s claims are without merit, and that they will present their factual and legal arguments in court. Both companies will now have to take their case to the courts. It remains to be seen whether Silicon Motion will be able to protect their rights and prevent MaxLinear from terminating the merger agreement. Regardless of the outcome, this dispute is sure to affect the future of both companies.

Price History

On Monday, Silicon Motion rejected MaxLinear’s termination of their merger deal. This news caused MAXLINEAR stock to open at $23.8 and close at $23.0, dropping by 3.3% from the previous closing price of $23.8. This decision comes after MaxLinear’s announcement that it was terminating the merger agreement due to a lack of “regulatory approval”.

Silicon Motion expressed its disappointment with the decision and believes that the deal should be allowed to proceed. It is unclear when or if the merger between Silicon Motion and MAXLINEAR will be allowed to go through, but it appears unlikely at this time. Live Quote…
