中国政府又干黄一桩美帝大公司交易

美国思科公司收购的AcaciaCommunications公司在1月8号出来发了一个声明,说因为在交易的最终完成日的时候未能获得中国市场监督管理总局对于双方交易的审批,因此终止了和思科公司并购。

这个声明很有意思,一方面说的是中国市场监督管理总局没有在1月8日之前批准交易,另一方面是对反向分手费的说法。

按照双方的规定,如果没能获得中国市场监督管理总局的批准,那么思科是要向AcaciaCommunications公司支付1.2亿美元的反向分手费的,但系,这个支付反向分手费的前提是思科没有放弃将中国市场监督管理总局作为交易的先决条件。这个事儿好玩的就是,思科在交易最终完成日来到之前,放弃了把中国政府审批作为交易的先决条件,所以,AcaciaCommunications无法要求思科支付反向分手费。但系,因为AcaciaCommunications没有放弃中国政府审批作为交易先决条件,所以他认为在中国政府没有批准的情况下,有权终止合约。

这个终止合约的通知一发给思科,思科不干了,直接将AcaciaCommunications公司告上了法庭。
