M&A As a Source of Growth and Diversification
- Building Through Buying: SYNNEX has been making efforts to differentiate itself from its competitors by diversifying beyond traditional distribution and expanding its portfolio of higher margin services. Key in this diversification effort has been SYNNEX’s Concentrix division, which has grown through six acquisitions.
- Good for the Goose and Gander: The largest of these transactions was SYNNEX’s 2014 acquisition of IBM’s customer care business process outsourcing (BPO) services business for $505 million. That deal benefitted both participants: IBM was able to divest what was for it a low margin segment, and SYNNEX diversified its offerings while Concentrix became a top-10 provider in the growing CRM BPO market.
- Strengthening Domain Expertise: Minacs specifically offers SYNNEX the opportunity to build its domain expertise in the automotive industry vertical and leverage Minacs’ proprietary technology in the Marketing Optimization and IoT solutions space.
