Intel Acquiring Alameda and Sunnyvale-Based Wind River Systems

June 4, 2009

Santa Clara-based Intel (INTC: 36.37 -1.76%) has announced that it is acquiring Wind River Systems for $884M. The acquisition comes on the heels of the fight over DataDomain by NetApp and EMC. As we suspected, we’re beginning to see an accelerated cycle of acquisitions take hold as companies with mountains of cash are empowered by low opportunity cost of that cash, as well as attractive pricing. Acquisitions might be good for companies gearing up as they move forward, but in a recessionary environment, the acquisitions generally translate into a net loss for the office space market as companies shed excess space and improve efficiencies as they integrate and consolidate.
