March 10, 2014 - As Mobile Technology is a key area of our focus, Goldenhill International M&A Advisors attended this year's industry-defining event, Mobile World Congress, which was once again hosted in the Mobile World Capital Barcelona, at two world-class venues, Fira Gran Via and Fira Montjuïc.
More than 85,000 attendees from over 200 countries were treated to a wealth of learning and networking opportunities; product showcases and announcements; inspiration and innovation.
Having attended the World Congress, spoke with many of the attendees and participated in numerous of the events, we came away with several key observations that we wish to share, including:
Convergence. We think that there is an increasing convergence between devices, network and the cloud. Companies are looking to automate more processes and leverage data from multiple channels to serve customers. Users are looking for a constant stream of data and the ability to store, secure and analyze it on the go.
Optimism. We noticed great optimism. Companies are thinking about expanding and making acquisitions again. We believe that we will see a constant increase in the number of transactions in the Mobile sector in the coming months.
International Expansion. The mobility service market is consolidating. We see many mid-market players expanding internationally and looking for consolidation opportunities in new markets. Such International growth via M&A is of course a specialty of Goldenhill's.
