(Reuters) – Chipmaker Broadcom will lay off about 1,300 VMware employees in California following its acquisition of the cloud-computing firm, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday.
Broadcom did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
The chipmaker will also review strategic options for two business units of VMware, Insider had reported on Wednesday, citing a leaked email from CEO Hock Tan to employees.
Broadcom closed its $69 billion acquisition of VMware on Nov. 22 after receiving regulatory approval from China.
