The stock has suffered in recent sessions on trader concern that a takeover bid from Qualcomm Inc.may fall through. Qualcomm has been pursuing a $44 billion deal to buy NXP since October 2016 but has recently run into regulatory trouble in China. A Chinese Commerce Ministry spokesperson said there are "related issues that are hard to resolve," adding that it would be difficult to "eliminate the negative impact" of a deal.
