Durante a conferência Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference, Tim Cook falou sobre aquisições.
Disse que a está comprando empresas praticamente mês sim, mês não. E empresas cada vez maiores.
Faz algum sentido as empresas serem cada vez maiores.
Cada vez mais falta gente/tempo para a Apple absorver pequenas empresas na sua rotina. Empresas maiores, a priori, teriam maior governança. Creio.
“Look at the last three years, we’ve averaged about an acquisition every other month. The kind of companies that we’ve push cased have been companies where ether have really smart people and or IP. Generally speaking, in many cases, we’ve taken something that their working on and moved the skills to work on something else. We bought a company called PA Semi a couple years ago. We were in the process of creating the engines in [iOS devices]. These were an incredible group of guys. We’ve done many many others that are similar in nature to that. We will do more of those. We’ really like to control the primary technology. In terms of large acquisitions… we have looked at large companies.. in each case, it didn’t pass our test for various reasons. We will look again, I’m sure we will. I think we have the management talent and depth to do it. we don’t feel press to acquire revenue, we want to make great products. Cash is not burring a hold in our pocket.”
