    Microsoft

     

    I read an article from 2011 saying that Microsoft had the option to meet or beat any offer NVDA receives for 30% of the company. Based on current numbers, this would trigger if the offer was for anything over $13.01 per shares.

    Questions.....

    1. Is this still the case, do they still have that right?

    2. Has there been any recent talk that MSFT might be interested in buying NVDA in order to lock up supply?

    3. Has anyone else expressed interest in the company?

      This question seems to come up every so often -- but I wonder where does the $13.01 share price even come into place? If the ROFR is still in place (much of the agreement is redacted but they still disclose it in their SEC files) why is there some necessary 3-5% premium, depending whatever "current" numbers you're using?

      I think I could write a somewhat compelling argument that MSFT should acquire NVDA, but I can't imagine management welcoming an acquirer. My disappointment around the third Tegra transition snafu aside, I believe Huang believes his company is well positioned to rival QCOM/INTC over the coming years. I think the genuinely believe he will create a $100B+ enterprise.

    • None was buying RIMM at $6.50 ......... and it shooted up to $18

      Watch out NVDA
