The U.S. joins the list of countries investigating NVIDIA’s acquisition of ARM

The bad news about Nvidia’s acquisition of ARM is even worse. Another organization is concerned that Nvidia has complete control of the British chip company, which provides blueprints for many technology companies including Apple and Samsung. Just days after the UK conducted a six-month investigation into the transaction, the US Federal Trade Commission decided to intervene in reviewing this move.

During Nvidia’s third-quarter earnings conference call, Chief Financial Officer Colette Kress revealed FTC’s interest in the acquisition (via protocol). No more details about the FTC investigation were provided, but given the UK investigation and the European Commission has expanded the investigation they are already conducting, this does not bode well.
