An acquisition of VIZIO by LeEco will no longer be happening this year. merger between LeEco and VIZIO was mentioned as a possibility earlier this year by both companies - that's no longer going to happen. In a message from LeEco today we're to understand that the merger agreement will not be moving forward "due to regulatory headwinds." That could mean a lot of different things - but the result is the same: VIZIO and LeEco will remain separate companies and brands. They'll also be teaming up on a few projects, so to speak.
