ARM CEO: Still in control

UK-Japan News June 2017

SoftBank has honoured its commitment not to interfere in the day-to-day running of ARM Ltd., Simon Segars, the firm’s chief executive officer, told Management Today in an interview published on 2 May. SoftBank acquired ARM for £24.3bn in September last year.

“They haven’t spoiled the neutrality and our discussions are all about strategy and growth”, Segars told the magazine.

Segars also praised the speed at which ARM can now grow and operate.

“For me and my team that has been pretty liberating and motivational”.
