Bloomberg is reporting that Broadcom would purchase Qualcomm at around $70 per share, in a deal that would include both cash and stock options. Broadcom is said to make the offer to Qualcomm in the next few days, but nothing is on paper just yet.

If this deal does come through, it'll send some large shockwaves through the industry as Qualcomm is in legal battles with Apple. Qualcomm has its technology and IP in billions of devices across the world, with a finger in everything cellular (3G, 4G, 5G, etc) and has as huge stranglehold in the mobile market with their Snapdragon line of products, as well as Quick Charge technology.
