Marty Wolf Interviewed on SYNNEX/Tech Data Merger Implications

martinwolf Managing Partner Marty Wolf was interviewed in SearchITChannel regarding the implications of SYNNEX’s (NYSE: SNX) $7.2 billion merger with Tech Data. Wolf explained that private equity will continue to play a major role in the IT distribution space with this merger coming on the heels of Platinum Equity’s acquisition of Ingram Micro.

 

“The equity firms have a different way of looking at the channel. They will break the existing business models and create new ones,” said Wolf, an IT M&A expert with involvement in more than 180 transactions.

 

The martinwolf Managing Partner points out the merger brings together two different business models, but SYNNEX has shown the ability to adapt since its beginnings.

 

“SYNNEX has been the most innovative of all distributors,” commented Wolf. “They were late into the market, caught up, created an innovative outsourcing model, and have a good track record of anticipating market needs and growing their business.”
