“Consistent with our commitment to return capital to our stockholders, we are pleased that our board has approved a new stock repurchase authorization, which enables our continued anti-dilutive share repurchases and provides flexibility for potential additional repurchases, as we execute on our proposed acquisition of NXP," said Steve Mollenkopf, CEO of Qualcomm.

Qualcomm has been working on completing its $43 billion acquisition of Dutch automotive chipmaker NXP Semiconductors for over 18 months. Qualcomm wants to buy NXP to reduce its reliance on smartphones, but is still awaiting regulatory clearance from China’s Ministry of Commerce to complete the deal.
