Is another tsunami of tech M&A upon us? Recent large acquisitions by Cisco, Google, Adobe, HP and other tech titans indicate that the merger tide may be rising after a dismal 2+ years in 2007, 2008 and early 2009. Moderated by veteran technology M&A advisor Steve Smith of Arma Partners, this all-star panel includes three high-level executives representing Cisco, Google, and Microsoft, the “gorillas” in their respective markets, all with what appears to be very different approaches to M&A opportunities. The fourth speaker is creating great returns by intelligent selling of portfolio companies.
