EU opens formal investigation into Nvidia’s Arm acquisition

The European Commission has opened a formal competition investigation into Nvidias acquisition of chip designer Arm. The deal, which would see Nvidia purchase the UK-based company from SoftBank for $40 billion, was announced in September 2020. In a press release, the EUs Executive Vice President Margrethe Vestager said that Nvidia buying Arm could make it harder for other manufacturers to access Arms technology, hurting much of the semiconductor industry (which is already facing supply problems). At the heart of concerns is Arms neutrality. Arm licenses its chip designs to a broad range of companies including Apple, Samsung, and Qualcomm, many of which compete with one another and Nvidia. There are fears that having Nvidia control Arm may result in Nvidias competitors being put at a disadvantage. Nvidias CEO Jensen Huang says this wont happen and has committed to maintaining Arms open licensing model. But critics of the deal fear that regulators wont be able to force Nvidia to remain neutral indefinitely, the Financial Times reported in February. According to the EUs press release, Nvidia submitted commitments to try to address some of these concerns, but the commission decided they were insufficient to clearly dismiss its serious doubts as to the effect of the transaction. The EU also plans on investigating how the deal could affect how competitors share information with Arm, and whether Nvidia could change Arms research and development funding to make its products more profitable, to the detriment of those that use Arms other tech. Both Nvidia and Arm have been expecting regulatory investigations like this and anticipate that the deal could take 18 months to complete. The EUs investigation is unlikely to be the only regulatory scrutiny the deal faces either. The UKs Competition and Markets Authority recommended its own in-depth investigation in August, after asking third parties to comment on the merger. According to the Financial Times, regulators in the US and China could also take a formal look at the deal. Separately, the UK is also investigating its potential national security implications.
