This report provides an overview of merger and acquisition activity in the Internet infrastructure sector focusing on the second half of 2009. The M&A Review is an invaluable tool for investors and industry executives who want to understand who are the main players in the M&A arena for the Internet infrastructure space, check on the current valuation levels being paid in the sector, get a review of the macro- and micro- level drivers for activity during 2009, and understand Tier1’s outlook for M&A activity in 2010. The report presents key details of numerous deals, followed by an in-depth analysis that summarizes the impact on the companies involved and the sector itself. Important M&A trends – present and emerging – are also identified.
The deals and companies analyzed in this report represent those that Tier1 Research believes have the greatest impact on the Internet infrastructure industry. The deals are grouped according to the following four categories: 1. Acquisition of complementary hosting and infrastructure lines, 2. Consolidation and rollup, 3. Acquisition of complementary technology and capabilities and 4. Private equity deals.
All financial, operational and facility estimates not disclosed by companies are based on our best projections, conversations with management, proprietary methodology and industry averages. Tier1 Research also uses its parent company’s proprietary merger and acquisition database, The 451 Group M&A Knowledgebase, to complete each deal profile as well as to track M&A deal value and volume statistics.
The individual transactions analyzed in this report specifically include deals in the hosting, wholesale datacenter, colocation and content delivery network sub-sectors. Also, a few additional deals, such as Dell/Perot, Emerson/Avocent, Adobe/Omniture, etc., were included in the individual deal transactions in order to address their impact on and implications for the Internet infrastructure market, but were not included as part of the comprehensive M&A data because they fall outside the defined sector.
