But this is just one of the variates.
In the fall of 2016, the Japanese giant SoftBank acquired Arm Holdings for $ 31 billion. Recently, Apple announced that it was going to abandon Intel processors and switch to proprietary solutions based on the Arm architecture.
Can Apple just buy Arm Holdings? SoftBank is considering selling this asset
According to the source, this served as an impetus for SoftBank, forcing the company to think about the future fate of Arm Holdings. At the moment, the Japanese are only exploring options, but are considering everything from a public offering to a full scale. It is not yet clear how interesting Arm Holdings will be for financial or industry players on the background of the transition arranged by Apple, but the point is that the Cupertians with their decision can push the market to a much more massive transition to Arm, and then the company’s assets will grow very much in price.
Interestingly, in the case of a sale, Apple itself may well be a buyer, which would be very interesting, but for now, this is just one of the assumptions, albeit quite reasonable.
