The TechZone has posted an editorial asking Do High Tech Acquisitions Make Sense?
Predicting failure is a pretty big statement for someone with limited knowledge of the specifics of the deal. But I can make that statement because numerous studies have shown that 40-80% of all mergers fail. That’s a whole bunch of investor money down the drain. And in High Tech, it seems like it’s very hard to find an example of a really good merger or acquisition.
