RUMOR: Major technology consolidation likely in 2017

Earlier this month we posted a rumor that one of the largest private equity backed AMS companies was about to be recapitalized. Since that rumor was posted, we’ve heard from multiple sources that the recapitalization is more likely to be an outright acquisition.

But there’s more…

Several of our sources believe that a series of investments, mergers, and acquisitions are currently in various stages of negotiation that would ultimately result in an unprecedented consolidation of association technology firms under a single umbrella company.

One of our sources says a few of these deals have already been struck, but the announcements are being delayed in order to coordinate a single announcement covering all of the acquisitions and investments.
