After months of data collection, analysis, and visualization, we have now completed work on the 2014 Big Broadcast Survey (BBS). Reports from this study have now been published and are available from Devoncroft Partners.

If you’re not familiar with the BBS, it’s the most comprehensive annual study of technology end-users in the global broadcast industry. Nearly 10,000 broadcast professionals in 100+ countries participated in the 2014 BBS, making it once again the largest market study of the broadcast industry.

BBS reports have been designed to help readers improve their strategic decision-making, customer engagement, marketing strategy, product planning, and sales execution.  BBS reports are also used frequently for M&A-related activities by both buyers and sellers.

More Broadcast Vendor M&A: Semtech Completes C$500 Million Acquisition of Gennum

Broadcast Vendor M&A | Posted by Joe Zaller
Mar 20 2012

Semtech announced that it has completed the acquisition of Gennum for C$13.55 per share, or approximately C$500 million. The acquisition was financed with a combination of cash from Semtech’s international cash reserves and C$350 million of five-year secured term loans.

Semtech estimates that the acquisition will result in at least C$15m in annual cost synergies by 2014, and will be accretive to non-GAAP earnings.

“Combining Gennum’s 1 Gbps to 25 Gbps signal integrity solutions with Semtech’s 40 Gbps to 100 Gbps SerDes solutions creates one of the industry’s most complete and robust analog and mixed signal portfolios targeted at the communications and enterprise computing segments,” said Mohan Maheswaran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Semtech Corporation. “This will enable us to help customers reduce bottlenecks in the access, metro and core networks, as demand for bandwidth continues to escalate. Moreover, Gennum’s strong position in video broadcast and the emerging HD video surveillance market further diversifies Semtech’s portfolio of high-performance analog semiconductors.”

Following the completion of the acquisition, Gennum Corporation has become Semtech Canada Inc. The shares of Gennum are expected to be delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange by March 26, 2012, and Gennum will cease to be a reporting issuer under applicable Canadian securities laws as soon as practicable.
