NXP shareholder Ramius to reject Qualcomm's buyout offer

    Ramius, which is an affiliate of Cowen Inc (COWN.O), said it had informed NXP that Qualcomm’s offer “dramatically” undervalued the company.

    The New York-based institutional asset manager owned about 2.5 million shares, or less than a one percent stake, in NXP Semiconductors, according to Thomson Reuters data.
