Back in 2020 NVIDIA announced a $40 billion deal to acquire Arm. However, due to mounting government / regulatory pressures and concerns raised by Arm customers, they are reportedly close to admitting defeat that the deal will not close.

The Bloomberg report also indicates Arm owner SoftBank is planning an IPO of Arm should the deal fall through.
