In May 28, 2015 chip maker Avago Technologies Ltd. agreed to buy Broadcom Corp. for $37 billion in cash and stock. At closing, which completed on February 1, 2016, Broadcom shareholders will hold 32% of the new Singapore-based company to be called Broadcom Limited.

With the now-successful integration of Broadcom and Avago in its rearview mirror, Broadcom Limited is looking for new acquisition targets.
