Yesterday Cavium published an annual report.
Acquisition of Vulcan not mentioned at all. I don't know what to make out of it. May be, the event considered so minor that they don't have to mention it.

Or, may be, it *is* mentioned, but in rather secretive manner?
In November 2016, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement with a third party company. Pursuant to the asset purchase agreement, the Company acquired property and equipment of $9.2 million and IPR&D of $2.0 million. The IPR&D was recorded at its relative fair using the multi-period
excess earnings valuation approach and was written off immediately as the asset had no alternative future use.


Anyway, it seems that Cavium of last two quarter is no more the same financially conservative Cavium of last 15 years. They started to take risks. Of course, it has very little to do with ThunderX in general and Vulcan in particular. The big change is an acquisition of QLogic.
