What do they have in common?
Back in 2003, Corel was acquired by Vector Capital.
In July 2005, PTC announced it was acquiring ArborText.
Adobe and Macromedia are working on a merger.
And now, BroadVision (which makes Interleaf) has announced that it is going private (it’s the opposite of an IPO) and being purchased by Vector Capital.
I think it adds up to a trend.
What does consolidation in this industry mean for us?
