5 Major Acquisitions in January

  1. 1. 5 Major Acquisitions in January 1
  2. 2. Activision Blizzard to Acquire Major League Gaming The Deal The video game publisher is jumping on the eSports bandwagon, reportedly paying $46 million for MLG. The Details The audience for eSports has grown rapidly, with over 100 million unique viewers today, and 300 million viewers expected by 2017. The acquisition allows Activision to tap into this growth, potentially strengthening the rest of its business as a result. “Our acquisition of Major League Gaming's business furthers our plans to create the ESPN of esports. MLG's ability to create premium content and its proven broadcast technology platform - including its live streaming capabilities - strengthens our strategic position in competitive gaming. MLG has an incredibly strong and seasoned team and a thriving community. Together, we will create new ways to celebrate players and their unique skills, dedication and commitment to gaming.” - Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick 2 “Our mission for over 12 years has been to promote and expand the growth of competitive gaming worldwide, and today the industry is at a key inflection point as its popularity soars and rivals that of many traditional professional sports.” - MLG CEO Sundance DiGiovanni January 4, 2016
  3. 3. General Electric to Sell Appliances Business to Haier The Deal GE is selling its appliances business to Chinese company Haier for $5.4 billion. The Details The deal values GE Appliances at 10 times TTM EBITDA, and will generate an after-tax gain of $0.20 per share for GE. GE has been selling off businesses in an effort to refocus on its core industrial businesses. Along with the appliances business, GE has greatly reduced the size of its financial arm, GE Capital. “We are pleased to be selling our Appliances business to Haier, which is committed to growing the business globally. GE Appliances is performing well and there was significant interest from potential buyers, helping drive a good deal which will benefit our investors, customers and employees.” - GE CEO Jeff Immelt 3 “Haier and GE share the same vision, and value innovation, customer service, and developing products of the highest quality. This transaction underscores Haier’s devotion to creating a global platform for innovation, which will benefit both Haier and GE Appliances and deliver enhanced value to all stakeholders. Haier is committed to investing in the U.S.” - Haier CEO Zhang Ruimin January 15, 2016
  4. 4. Microchip to Acquire Atmel The Deal The microcontroller provider is paying $8.15 per share for competitor Atmel. The Details The total enterprise value for the deal is $3.4 billion. Microchip expects $170 million in synergies in fiscal 2019, and for the transaction to be accretive to non-GAAP EPS. Shareholders of Atmel will receive $7 per share in cash and $1.15 per share in Microchip common stock. Atmel has paid Dialog Semi a termination fee of $137.3 million, as that company’s offer was inferior to Microchip’s. “As the semiconductor industry consolidates, Microchip continues to execute a highly successful consolidation strategy with a string of acquisitions that have helped to double our revenue growth rate compared to our organic revenue growth rate over the last few years. The Atmel acquisition is the latest chapter of our growth strategy and will add further operational and customer scale to Microchip.” - Microchip CEO Steve Sanghi 4 “Microchip and Atmel have a strong tradition of innovation, stretching across microcontroller, analog, touch, connectivity and memory solutions. Joining forces and combining our product portfolios will offer our customers a richer set of solution options to enable innovative and competitive products for the markets they serve.” - Microchip COO Ganesh Moorthy January 19, 2016
  5. 5. IBM Acquires Ustream The Deal The enterprise hardware, software, and services company paid $130 million for the provider of video streaming services. The Details Ustream’s service was already integrated into IBM’s Bluemix cloud platform prior to the deal, but the acquisition bolsters IBM’s portfolio of cloud technologies. IBM estimates that the market for cloud-based video services and software is a $105 billion opportunity. Ustream will be combined with other acquisitions in a new video services business unit. “Video has become a first-class data type in business that requires accelerated performance and powerful analytics that allows clients to extract meaningful insights. Aligning our expansive video and cloud innovations into an integrated unit will create opportunities for clients to take advantage of this medium in the most strategic way possible.” - IBM Cloud SVP Robert LeBlanc 5 “Video is the most powerful and emotional medium. Increasingly it is becoming the favored form of communication, not just for entertainment, but also for business. We’ve built a video platform that is easy-to-use, yet incredibly scalable, secure and powerful and it is these qualities that made us an ideal addition to IBM’s portfolio.” - Ustream CEO Brad Hunstable January 21, 2016
  6. 6. Johnson Controls and Tyco to Merge The Deal Johnson Controls, a provider of solutions for building efficiency, automotive batteries, and interior systems for automobiles, is merging with Tyco, a provider of fire protection and security products and services. The Details Johnson Controls shareholders will own 56% of the combined company, with Tyco shareholders owning the rest. $500 million in annual operational synergies are expected within the first three years, along with $150 million in annual tax synergies. “The proposed combination of Johnson Controls and Tyco represents the next phase of our transformation to become a leading global multi- industrial company. With its world-class fire and security businesses, Tyco aligns with and enhances the Johnson Controls buildings platform and further positions all of our businesses for global growth. Through this transaction, we will also expand our ability to further invest globally, develop new innovative solutions for customers and return capital to shareholders.” - Johnson Controls CEO Alex Molinaroli 6 “We believe this transaction will allow us to better capture opportunities created by increased connectivity in homes, buildings and cities.” - Tyco CEO George Oliver January 25, 2016
