SOKOLOFF & COMPANY CASE STUDY:
DATE ANNOUNCED: October 29, 2012
SELLER’S FINANCIAL INFORMATION AND M&A MULTIPLES
TRANSACTION DRIVERS: The acquisition enables Riverbed to extend its network performance management (NPM) business into the multi-billion dollar application performance management (APM) market. The addition of OPNET gives Riverbed the ability to provide customers with a unique integrated solution that not only monitors network and application performance, but also accelerates it. "The addition of OPNET establishes Riverbed as the clear leader in the high-growth and converging application and network performance management markets,” said Jerry Kennelly, Chairman and CEO at Riverbed. “This acquisition also transforms Riverbed into a billion dollar revenue company."
The expensive answer is more hardware, more bandwidth, more applications, more professional services and sometimes complete replacement of network elements. OPNET and RVBD’s product approach has been to understand what is really happening and guide network and IT managers to the most elegant solutions at the least cost. And future demand for such will only increase.
