Broadcom said it will honour a deal regardless of whether Qualcomm’s pending acquisition of NXP Semiconductors is approved.In a statement, Broadcom said its advisors were confident the nature of the deal would mean it was cleared by regulators in a “timely manner” and expected it to be completed within a year of being accepted.The bid comes days after intense speculation Broadcom was set to make a $100 billion offer – a sum Bloomberg reported would be rejected by Qualcomm as it “undervalued” the company.In a letter to Qualcomm shareholders, Broadcom CEO Hock Tan said: “A combination of Qualcomm and Broadcom will create a strong, global company with an impressive portfolio of industry-leading technologies and products.“Given the highly complementary nature of our businesses, we are confident that our global customers will embrace the proposed combination as we work strategically with them to deliver more advanced value-added semiconductor solutions.”ReviewQualcomm confirmed it received the unsolicited offer.In a statement, it added: “The Qualcomm board of directors, in consultation with its financial and legal advisors, will assess the proposal in order to pursue the course of action that is in the best interests of Qualcomm shareholders. Qualcomm will have no further comment until its board of directors has completed its review.”A deal between Broadcom and Qualcomm would be the largest acquisition of a technology company to date and would create the world’s third-largest chipmaker behind Intel and Samsung (see chart from Broadcom, left – click to expand).The current highest successful bid for the purchase of a chip company is Qualcomm’s $38 billion deal for NXP Semiconductors, an acquisition still going through a lengthy regulatory approval process.Broadcom’s shareholder offer is equivalent to Qualcomm’s share price in May 2015, prior to a well-publicised legal spat with Apple, which hit recent earnings and its share price.

Nine Mornings before Christmas, Vincentians awake in the early hours of the morning and partake in a range of activities, among them sea baths, dances (or in local parlance, fetes), bicycle riding and street concerts. In the rural areas, the final morning of the festivity usually ends with a steel band “jump-up”.The origins of this festivity are clouded in some mystery, although the original tradition relates it to the ‘novena’ of the Catholic Church on the nine days before Christmas. It is believed that after the early morning church services of the Catholics, worshippers began walking the streets while others went for sea baths. From this the popular Nine Mornings festivity emerged. Although popular opinion has this practice as starting during the period of slavery, it was more likely to have been a post-emancipation practice.

Photo/Tim Reilly“I think it was the start of the second overtime, I’m feeling like a fan just like everyone else,” said Spring Lake coach Bill Core. “I could sit here for 10 overtimes, and I’d enjoy every second.”Grand Haven led 19-12 after one quarter, 30-27 at halftime and 40-39 at the third break.Spring Lake had a 56-52 advantage with 2:10 left in regulation, but the Bucs roared back with a three-pointer by Dimitrius Neely, and later tied the game 56-56 when Kellum Bridgeforth split a pair at the free throw line with 1:20 left.The game was tied 59-59 after the first OT, leading to the final extra session, when the Lakers got the win.It was the Lakers’ dominant senior post duo of 6-foot-6 Griffin Lorimer and 6-9 Sam Johnson that made sure the game didn’t go more than two extra sessions.Lorimer had a monster game with 21 points and 11 rebounds, while Johnson scored six of his 12 points in the second overtime to help hold off another Bucs’ rally.The pair were pivotal in helping Spring Lake dominate in two key areas. The Lakers held a 39-21 rebounding advantage and connected on 26-of-36 shots from the free throw line. The Bucs were just 7-of-10 from the charity stripe.“In practice this week, we challenged our bigs,” Core said. “We knew that’s where our advantage had to be. And to dominate the boards like we did, and to dominate the attempts at the free throw line, those were huge for us.”Dimitrius Neely lofts a layup over Spring Lake’s Sam Johnson. Photo/Tim ReillyLorimer the most consistent difference-maker throughout the game. He connected on a pair of 3-pointers, drew a key charge foul in the second overtime and also made two clutch free throws with five seconds remaining to give the Lakers their final 69-66 advantage.With a chance to tie, Grand Haven’s Bryce Taylor’s straightaway three-pointer was wide right, and the mad scramble for the loose rebound resulted in a jump ball, with the possession arrow favoring the Lakers.Spring Lake was able to throw deep and dribble out the clock on the run, setting off a celebration with the Laker student section rushing the court.Lorimer said he always felt like the Lakers had the upper hand throughout the tight fourth quarter and two overtimes, even after his team coughed up a pair of slim leads with under four minutes left in the fourth quarter.“I was just happy to still be in it,” Lorimer said with a grin. “I was living in the moment. I was like, ‘Alright, you’re going to give us another chance, let’s do it.’ That’s how I approached it.“It felt like every time we got a little bit ahead, they’d make some big threes to tie it. Ultimately, our free throw shooting helped us stay in it at the end.”Casey Constant led Grand Haven with 16 points while Taylor and Bridgeforth scored 14 and 13 points, respectively.Jack VanWingen totaled 13 points, nine rebounds and three steals for Spring Lake.“Give credit to Spring Lake,” said Grand Haven Coach Greg Immink. “They made the winning plays when they needed to. Their rebounding hurt us and their free throw shooting; they made them all. Good teams do that.” Bestseller Inappropriate / Offensive Ads by Amazon Add Comments (Max 320 characters) Inappropriate / Offensive $14.99$18.00 Displayed poorly Not relevant Bestseller Inappropriate / Offensive Report a problem This item is… Other Inappropriate / Offensive Add Comments (Max 320 characters) DEAL OF THE DAY 0 Report a problem This item is… ENDS IN Add Comments (Max 320 characters) × Report a problem This item is… × Inappropriate / Offensive NBC Sports Report a problem This item is… × 50PC Disposable Face MàSc/Mack Anti-Dust … $49.95 $9.99 (2) Bestseller FOX Sports: Stream live NFL, College Footbal… ENDS IN Spring Lake’s No. 30 Cayden Ball dribbles past Casey Constant.
