[#SmartGrid #スマートグリッド] 通信モジュールメーカ、Atheros社がスマートグリッドベンダであるIntellon社を買収。標準かも早いけ…

スマートグリッドが規模が大きい事業になる、という事を受けて、小さなスマートグリッドベンダーが量産体制に入る事が出来る戦略をとる、という意図も含まれる、と考えられる。

SilverSpringsのような会社が百億の資金を得て市場を広げる動きを見せる一方、他のベンダーも成長戦略を展開する事が急がれている、様にも感じる。


Atheros-Intellon acquisition approved

NEW YORK — Atheros Communications Inc. said Tuesday it has completed its acquisition of technology company Intellon Corp.

Atheros paid $113.6 million in cash and just over 5 million shares of common stock in the deal, which was approved by Intellon stockholders Friday and closed on Tuesday.

The acquisition combines Intellon’s home networking and smart grid technology with Atheros’ wireless communications business.

The deal “further enables us to address the growing demand for flexible, high-bandwidth networking in the digital home and low-power, always-connected infrastructure in the emerging smart grid market,” said Craig Barratt, president and CEO of Atheros Communications.

Atheros stock rose 27 cents to close at $32.18.
