    On 9 November 2018, II-VI Incorporated announced plans to acquire Finisar in a cash and stock deal with an equity value of $3.2 billion; the acquisition is expected to close in the middle of 2019. The combined company will generate approximately $2.5 billion in annual revenue. The markets for photonic products are diverse and increasingly competitive, and product R&D and fabrication facilities for compound semiconductors are very expensive. Consolidation to achieve scale is a viable strategy to maintain the level of investment required to develop differentiated products serving fast-growing, diverse markets. With the Finisar acquisition, II-VI nearly doubles in size in terms of revenue, R&D investment, and employees. Clients, please log in to view the full content.

    On 15 October 2018, Arm and Intel announced that Arm would adopt Intel’s Secure Device Onboarding (SDO) technology as part of Arm’s Pelion IoT platform. This collaboration should facilitate IoT market growth by reducing complexity and risk in the device supply chain. Both Arm and Intel benefit from partnering, though Intel gains a more important strategic win by shoring up the relevance of the Intel x86 chip architecture for IoT applications in the face of the increasing traction of Arm’s Cortex-M and Cortex-A architectures in the IoT market.
