Recharge high tech growth with next-gen M&A

Traditional organic growth in the high tech industry is dead, due to the rising cost of R&D, speed of technology turnover and a more demanding, diverse customer base. Instead, leading companies are using M&A as a growth strategy.

M&A impact

Growing the core

Pursuing growth via expansion in existing markets, customer segments, product set or customer markets drives growth.

Migrating to adjacent businesses

Growing via expansion in the value chain with new distribution channels, geographies, product or tech modifications serving new customer segments.

Pivoting to new opportunities

Achieving growth through new products and services, migrating into “white spaces.” Doing so involves risk, and market reaction is not always positive.
