Your Brief Summary

In today’s Daily Brief, we'll be looking at Microsoft's deal to buy Activision, which is under regulator scrutiny.

"Regulators were always going to come snooping in a deal of this size – there are fears that Microsoft could harm competition by restricting titles like Call of Duty from rivals like Sony. And with regulators from outside the US also looking at the deal, it could be a long slog for Microsoft to get it over the line."

Key takeaways:

  • US regulators are suing to block Microsoft’s deal to buy Activision, and this probably won't be the deal's last hurdle
  • Chipmaker TSMC is bucking the broader chip slump, helped by iPhone chip orders from its favorite customer
