British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has revived talks with Japan’s SoftBank Group Corp regarding a London listing for chip designer Arm Ltd, the Financial Times reported on Monday.

Sunak met Arm’s Chief Executive Rene Haas last month in Downing Street and Masayoshi Son, the billionaire founder of SoftBank, joined via video, the report said, citing people familiar with the matter.

The meeting was described as “very constructive” by two people briefed on the matter, and “positive” by another, the FT reported.

Arm declined to comment, while SoftBank did not immediately respond to a Reuters’ query.
