Financial Times quoted Frank Aquila in their March 13 article “Trump's Broadcom block sends ripples across corporate America,” about the decision to block Broadcom's $142 billion takeover of Qualcomm. “The fact that the president took pre-emptive action before a deal was even signed is extremely disturbing and inconsistent with all of our notions of due process,” Frank said. “It will also make it more difficult for American companies to cry foul when they are blocked in other countries for political reasons. This action does not bode well for robust cross border M&A activity in a number of sectors.”
