New research report: Is Manhattan Associates an Acquisition Target? @mgiresearch #MANH
Despite the huge cash hoard sitting on software companies balance sheets, perennial predictions of a massive wave of 2011 industry consolidation have not materialized. SaaS company mergers are few and far between while enterprise software companies have been cautious to avoid any non-accretive deals. We believe that amongst several possible industry merger transactions, Manhattan Associates, a provider of supply chain execution software is now themost likely acquisition target. Among the short-list of potential acquirers are SAP, Oracle, Infor, and JDA Software as well as a few private equity firms.
