(Reuters) – Qualcomm Inc (QCOM.O) urged peer Broadcom Ltd (AVGO.O) to enter into direct negotiations on a price for merging the two companies and said they had made progress on regulatory and other deal certainty issues at a meeting last week.

Qualcomm maintained that all of Broadcom’s previous offers materially undervalued the company.

“The Board encourages Broadcom to enter into mutual due diligence and price negotiations,” Qualcomm said.
