Acquisition Happy?

Maybe Sarbox has you scared and you just want a big check and a shiny new business card at an acquisitive giant conglomerate.

Semiconductors (20%), Security (14%) and Biotech (12%) companies led the way there. Just be careful … for every massive Instagram acquisition, many others were soft landings or acquihires. It might be rough going from ruling your own (small kingdom) to filling out TPS reports.

Funny, because when I think of acquisitions this year, all I can think about are Instagram and Yammer.

Last year it was Motorola and Skype.

Clearly I have selective glasses for these things.
