"The pace of technology mergers and acquisitions has shown no signs of abating so far this year. In fact, the size and depth of dealmaking is ever more robust.
Not only are the larger serial acquirers of the past few years still in the hunt. So, too, are a new band of corporate dealmakers and private equity players who in the first quarter of 2006 dominated dealmaking. (See table)
Aside from Mountain View, Calif.-based VeriSign Inc., which has already made five acquisitions in 2006, none of the 10 most frequent technology acquirers last year has negotiated one of the top 10 takeovers in the first quarter of 2006. But that's not to say technology's most acquisitive companies over the past three years have been inactive."
