Analog Devices buys Maxim

REPORT ACCESS

July 2020 saw Analog Devices (ADI) set to buy Maxim Integrated in an all-stock transaction valued at US$21 billion, representing a 22% premium to Maxim’s previous day closing price. Earlier in April 2021 this deal received EU approval and the acquisition went ahead at the agreed price of $21 billion. Consequently, the semiconductor patent landscape is set to shift as ADI’s market share increases and their position in the competitive landscape strengthens.

Now that the deal has gone through, we’ve taken a look at the both patent portfolios and have delved into the following key areas:

  • a breakdown of ADI and Maxim’s portfolios by semiconductor technologies
  • the portfolio strength of the consolidated portfolio versus other organisations in this space
  • adopting an efficient due diligence approach to M&A
