Arm CEO - No change in our business model after Nvidia deal

LONDON, Sept 14 (Reuters) - The chief executive of British chip designer Arm said on Monday that its proposed $40 billion takeover by U.S. Nvidia would change neither its business model nor which jurisdiction governs its technology.

“We will maintain our neutral business model, and will keep a level of independence,” Arm CEO Simon Segars told analysts on a conference call, asked whether the U.S. CFIUS security regime would now govern its customer relationships.
