Post Microsoft Pact with Nvidia Could Result in Future Takeover

Computer giant Microsoft has a deal in place with graphics and mobile processor manufacturer Nvidia that gives the Redmond-based company the exclusive right to equal any offers by third-parties for 30 percent or more of Nvidia's outstanding shares. The deal effectively prevents any other company besides Microsoft from acquiring Nvidia.

In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing dated May 27 and reviewed by Information Week, Nvidia says, 'Under the agreement, if an individual or corporation makes an offer to purchase shares equal to or greater than 30% of the outstanding shares of our common stock, Microsoft may have first and last rights of refusal to purchase the stock.'

Nvidia is a major player in the booming tablet component market and also manufactures parts for personal computers. This week at the Computex trade show in Taiwan, Microsoft showed off Windows 8 tablets running on chips made by Nvidia. Other companies using its components include Samsung and Motorola.

MS is poised to dominate the mobile market. They have the means, the will, and hopefully the software to do it.

I am looking forward to a slick ass tablet with that new os.
