RFMD to acquire TQNT in what is being billed as a merger of equals, RFMD will join with TQNT to form a new company. This will result in original shares being converted to the new company share as follows. TQNT 1:1.675 RFMD 1:1. After this is done, there will be a reverse stock split of 4 to 1 to reduce the number of shares outstanding.

This will fill in the tech gaps for each company. RFMD is very good at amps and switches, while TQNT excels at filters. They also compliment each other in their respective dealings with clients. TQNT is in large with Apple and RFMD has the better relationship with Samsung.


Post merger the new company will have better leverage and an excellent position in the industry. This looks like a win-win for the share holders of both companies.
