Qualcomm Completes CSR Acquisition

Qualcomm has finally completed its acquisition of CSR, a fabless provider of end-to-end semiconductor and software solutions for the Internet of Everything and automotive segments. The company announced its offer for CSR in November 2013 (Qualcomm to Buy CSR for $2.5 Billion), for a cash consideration of approximately $2.5 billion.

Cambridge Silicon Radio Limited is currently an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of CSR that operates, along with its affiliates, substantially all of CSR’s engineering, research and development functions, along with substantially all of the CSR products and services businesses. Cambridge Silicon Radio Limited will be renamed Qualcomm Technologies International, Ltd., which will become a subsidiary of Qualcomm Technologies.
