One might think December would be a slow month for the M&A activity within the channel. In total, there weren’t a significant number of tech deals with channel impact. That said, the mergers and acquisitions that did occur – and the ones that are pending – are noteworthy for their size and scope.
Take the FTC lawsuit seeking to block the Microsoft-Activision Blizzard deal. Microsoft officials say they are confident the company will prevail. If so, it would be the largest-ever acquisition in gaming history. Our reporting goes into why Microsoft refutes the FTC’s gaming dominance claim.
What’s also in limbo? HPE was interested in taking over cloud computing/hyperconverged infrastructure company Nutanix. That’s what we reported on in December. However, recent reports suggest HPE’s interest has waned.
On a completely different note, sometimes a deal is like a party. Several companies – well, three to be exact – were on the invite list to merge, creating Massachusetts-based technology advisory firm Amplix. Read our roundup to find out which of the three organizations purchased a majority interest in the new firm.
In addition, if you didn’t catch our previous M&A gallery, you can find it here.
