The inter-agency body, led by the Treasury, rarely looks at mergers before companies have clinched an agreement, highlighting the urgency of United States concerns about safeguarding semiconductor technology.
Qualcommstated on 5 March that "Broadcom's claims that the CFIUS inquiry was a surprise to them has no basis in fact".

The panel also advised against a deal between Chinese-backed private equity firm Canyon Bridge and USA chipmaker Lattice Semiconductor Corp, leading president Trump to block the proposal in September 2017. Instead, Broadcom has resorted to what is essentially a hostile takeover by putting forward a slate of six Broadcom nominees for Qualcomm's 11-member board.
Broadcomsaid on March 5 that CFIUS' intervention was the result of secret moves made by Qualcomm on January 29 to seek an investigation into the offer, which Qualcomm's board has said significantly undervalues the company.
