BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager will hold a news conference at 9:30 GMT, the European Commission said on Wednesday, with the focus expected to be on U.S. chipmaker Broadcom.

The EU executive did not provide details of the conference.

Vestager is expected to order Broadcom to suspend certain business practices with TV and modem makers that may be anti-competitive, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters earlier this month.
