Mergers and Acquisitions Slow Down
December, 02nd 2009

As 2009 winds down, the amount of merger and acquisition activity in the M2M (machine-to-machine) space seems to be winding down as well. While the summer brought a flurry of M&A deals, the latter months of the year have been slow for buyouts, tie-ups, and other incidences of market consolidation. For 2009 so far, M2M magazine records 13 M2M mergers and acquisitions, for a total of 110 since 2004.

However, it is possible December could see more M&A activity, so it is too early to say with certainty that 2009 will trail 2008 in market consolidation activity.

One recently announced deal was United Technologies Corp.s, www.utc.com, Hartford, Conn., purchase of GE Security, www.gesecurity.com, Bradenton, Fla., from GE. GE Security is part of GEs Technology Infrastructure division, and it supplies safety and security technologies for both commercial and residential customers.

These products include video surveillance and alarm systems.

United Technologies bought the business from GE for $1.82 billion, and GE Security will become part of Uniteds Fire and Security business unit.

In October, Impact Technologies, www.impact-tek.com, Rochester, N.Y., announced it acquired the assets and business of former M2M 100 company EMRT, www.emrt.com, Victor, N.Y. Impact says that EMRTs experience in developing, integrating, and managing connected systems will combine well with Impacts work in total asset management.

EMRTs assets will operate through Impact Technologies newly formed Commercial Systems Integration Group.
