VALUENEX M&A Panoramic Analysis Sample
－Analyzing Softbank's strategy based on the acquisitions of ARM and Sprint－
The analysis highlights the following points:
- [FACT 1] The patents of Softbank and Yahoo! JAPAN in this area are mainly software technology (web-related tech)
- [FACT 2] Softbank acquired Sprint, a major US communication carrier, in 2013 and strengthened existing communication technology (base stations, etc.).
- [FACT 3] Softbank acquired ARM (UK), a major semiconductor and software design company, in 2016 and acquired hardware technology (semiconductor) patents.
[VALUENEX PREDICTION] In Softbank's evolving M&A strategy, we can assume that the "content distribution business," which combines patented technologies of Softbank / Sprint (US) / ARM (UK), will emerge. The analysis also suggests potential for expansion into the medical field via technologies such as remote diagnosis.
