Mobile (MBLY) Acquisition
On March 13, 2017 Intel announced they are acquiring Mobile (MBLY) for 15.3 billion. Mobileye is a leading technology provider for the autonomous vehicle industry. This could be a game changer for Intel.
The acquisition is expected to be accretive (add to, grow) to Intel’s earnings and free cash flow in year one. Mobileye will be good for Intel, and Intel will be good for Mobileye. Mobileye will now have Intel’s solid balance sheet and almost unlimited cash to grow the company. This acquisition should have large positive synergies when you take into account Intel’s global reach in manufacturing and marketing.
MBLY revenues are growing exponentially:
2011: 19 M
2012: 40 M
2013: 81 M
2014: 144 M
2015: 241 M
2016: 358 M
Unlike many young fast growing technology companies, MBLY has already been profitable the last two years.
The acquisition of Mobileye establishes Intel as the leader in autonomous driving technology. Intel has the resources and knows how to excel in a market that is going to have exponential growth. Not only is the stock reasonably priced, it now has a potential driver for growing company earnings for the next couple of decades.
Intel operates 5 main groups:
1. Client Computing Group (CCG)
Although this is a shrinking group, it is still the largest group. Its products have nearly dominated the PC desk top market for years.
2. Data Center Group (DCG)
This one of the fastest growing groups and the second largest. The Data Center Group may pass the PC Client Group in a few years (maybe 2019?). The focus is on providing energy efficient performance in data center servers which provide storage and network connectivity platforms.
3. Internet of Things Group (IoTG)
Along with the Data Center Group, this is where Intel is growing fastest. IoT is somewhat ambiguous, because it involves so many products. It can be described as an assortment of mini processors, sensors, and wireless communication devices that are able to exchange and make use of information (interoperable ecosystems). Increasing security and simplifying connectivity are the main goals of the group.
4. Software and Services Operating Group (SSG)
This groups enables platforms for use across multiple operating systems, applications, and services. One of their biggest goals is to protect customers from malware and emerging online treats. Security is in high demand and becoming more important every day.
5. All Other
Includes all new devices and non-volatile memory solutions.
