JANA Partners LLC Urges Qualcomm To Sell Chipset Business

JANA Partners LLC urged QUALCOMM Incorporated (NasdaqGS:QCOM) to consider moves like spinning off or selling its chipset business. In a letter to investors, Jana argued that Qualcomm has suffered from poor stock performance because investors haven’t recognized its long-term potential. “Over the past several months we have been engaged in a constructive dialogue regarding the steps it can take to restore investor confidence and unlock shareholder value,” Barry Rosenstein, the head of Jana, wrote in a letter. Perhaps the most prominent recommendation is splitting off Qualcomm’s chipset business, which makes chips for cellphones.
