M&A news continues to dominate the channel in recent months, and December was no exception. There were some enormous deals, including the much talked about 8×8 acquisition of competitor Fuze. Although that deal was among Channel Futures’ most-read stories, the transaction didn’t have the biggest price tag. At least five of the companies we feature in the slideshow above are deals worth more than $1 billion dollars. And one is valued at close to $30 billion.

However, some channel companies were less about acquisition and more about shedding assets. Ingram Micro sold a division of its company to one of France’s largest companies. The sale is worth billions as well.

Speaking of bllions, CDW closed on its purchase of Sirius, a deal with huge MSP ramifications.

Scroll through the images above to see the latest deals in the channel. Then check out what we thought were the biggest mergers and acquisitions of 2021!
