After closing of the deal, Catena will continue to operate as a standalone company, wholly owned by NXP. This setup will allow the Catena team to continue to serve third parties, outside of NXP, as they have successfully done in the past.

But once NXP acquire Catena, they will stop servicing /selling IP to other clients. So no conflict of interest!

Won't a product company buying an IP and solution provider lead to a conflict of interest?
