Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) and NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) get to some unfinished business
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) and NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) are believed to be busy in an unannounced ongoing negotiation regarding acquisition of NVDA by INTC in near future. However, both of the firms are conducting business with each other for considerable period of time. But, until recently, INTC is reported to have taken some significant steps towards buying NVIDIA Corporation out.
Nevertheless, both of the companies are barred with a signed documentation named Active NDA, which restricts them from going into an acquisition deal. On the other hand, INTC BOD has announced for the maiden time in history that they are considering an outsider for the position of CEO.
Media however, correlated this ground breaking statement with the request of NVDA CEO to take up the executive role for the resultant entity from INTC-NVDA long term collaboration, which caused the deal to remain unfinished few years back.
