  • Broadcom agrees to buy CA Technologies for $19 billion

Broadcom Inc. shares fell almost 14% on Thursday, showing the challenge Chief Executive Hock Tan faces in persuading investors that his $18.9 billion purchase of the software company CA Technologies makes sense for the chip giant.

The deal, which took Wall Street analysts by surprise, came after U.S. President Donald Trump stopped the company from trying to buy Qualcomm earlier this year.

"This transaction represents an important building block as we create one of the world's leading infrastructure technology companies", Broadcom Chief Executive Hock Tan said in a statement.

Below is a timeline of Avago's/Broadcom's major deals in the past six years.
