M&A trends & market analysis

During the Milan 2017 Globalscope conference, the network’s global Technology, Media & Telecoms (TMT) sector team met to discuss recent transactions and the evolving underlying structural drivers of the global sector M&A landscape.

A key theme is the potential of AI and machine learning to become more commonplace in day-to-day life. More details can be obtained from team members or regional heads – see contact details below.


Notable recent transactions

Intel to acquire Mobileye

Leading integrated chip manufacturer Intel has announced its intention to acquire Mobileye for $15.4bn, to create one of the world’s leading suppliers of autonomous driving systems. This acquisition accelerates Intel’s diversification away from traditional PC and server chipsets.

Cisco pre-empts AppDynamics IPO

Cisco has snapped up application performance monitoring software vendor AppDynamics for $3.7bn, moments before its long-awaited IPO. For Cisco, the deal represents further efforts to provide enterprises with a holistic view of their network.

CenturyLink to buy Level 3 Communications

CenturyLink is acquiring internet service provider Level 3 Communications in a deal valued at $34bn, which will extend CenturyLink’s proprietary fiber network by 200,000 miles.

Lower-mid market observations

Activation of Virtual Technologies

The expanding presence of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) represents a spirited vision for mid-market businesses. Mid-sized firms are aggressively competing alongside bigger players to deliver their products in a more tangible and experiential manner than ever before.

Cybersecurity

Mergers and acquisitions will soar over the next 12 months, as companies in a wide array of industries seek to improve efficiency in business processes and increase protection against cyberattacks.

Sector themes

China to Grow

China’s TMT M&A deals overseas grew by a CAGR of 27% from 2012 to 2016, far exceeding North America, Europe and other regions, and is expected to grow steadily in 2017 as Chinese tech companies try to acquire foreign high-tech and realize their globalization strategies, according to Deloitte. 

OTT and “Skinny Bundles”

Google’s launch of YouTube TV, alongside the continual growth of over-the-top (OTT) content providers such as Netflix and Amazon, has led to a growth of pared-down, less costly subscriptions. Some commentators believe TV’s days are numbered. 

AI & Machine Learning

The world’s biggest internet companies, including Google, Facebook and IBM, are investing heavily in AI-based tech – this is set to continue at an increasing rate. 2017 has already seen Amazon buy data security firm harvest.ai for $20m, and Baidu acquire AI voice assistant platform Raven Tech.
