HP-Palm Deal Is Representative of the Shifting Wireless M&A Landscape

The spate of recent acquisitions in the wireless space has a familiar ring to it. In the October 2009 Yankee Group Report 'Navigating the Turbulent Sea Change to Mobile 2.0, Yankee Group speculated that wireless merger and acquisition (M&A) activity would accelerate, as the wireless space embarked on a similar cycle of creative destruction that characterized the formation of Web 2.0. Just weeks later, Google acquired AdMob for U.S.$750 million, kicking off an M&A frenzy that continued through last week, when Hewlett-Packard acquired Palm for $1.2 billion. This report reviews all the recent acquisitions activity, examines what it means for consumers and other industry participants, and speculates on what other wireless M&A deals are likely to follow. Highlights of the Big Deals to Date M&A is nothing new to telecommunications. Merged brands like Sprint Nextel and Alcatel-Lucent speak to a long history of companies gobbling up one another. And yet, if the last six months are any indication, deal-making today is reaching a fever pitch. The biggest deals recently have all been in the mobile advertising space. First, in November 2009, came Google's eye-popping $750 million acquisition of AdMob. A little more than a month later, Apple made its own mobile advertising acquisition, landing Quattro Wireless for $275 million. These two mega-announcements were followed by the news of the smaller acquisition of AdMarvel by mobile Web browser company Opera, in a deal valued between $8 million and $23 million.
