UK launches investigation into NVIDIA acquisition of ARM to determine if it harms ‘national security’

The UK Competition Authority is investigating a potential acquisition of ARM by NVIDIA. The investigation specifically identifies whether the acquisition has an impact on the national security of the United Kingdom. The impact on competition on the market is also examined.

The investigation was announced by the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). The investigation follows Nvidia’s announcement that the company wants to take over ARM for 40 billion dollars, or about 33 billion dollars. The deal is being investigated worldwide, with particular attention being paid to the impact on competition on the market.

In the long term, the UK CMA will present a report giving advice on possible problems of jurisdiction and competition. The report also includes a summary of potential safety concerns resulting from a consultation of third parties. Once the first phase of the investigation has been completed, the UK authorities can approve the transaction, impose additional requirements on the acquisition or carry out further investigations.
