UK clears Broadcom’s $69 billion deal to buy VMware


(Reuters) – UK’s competition regulator said on Monday it has cleared U.S. tech company Broadcom’s $69 billion purchase of VMware, following an in-depth phase-2 probe.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) in July provisionally cleared the deal, saying it would not weaken competition in the supply of critical computer server products.
