[Report] Analyzing the M&A of the big four: Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon

Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon—collectively known as GAFA—are among the richest companies on the planet, with $1.7 trillion between them. The four frequently splurge on smaller companies, whether they plan to absorb new innovations or halt a growing competitor.

Amazon prioritizes big names around the world, whether it’s Whole Foods Market or the company’s Middle Eastern counterpart, Souq.com. Google is moving into hardware and data, while Apple and Facebook use their ample wealth to bolster their respective points of differentiation in a competitive market.

The history of business is littered with companies deemed ‘too big to fail,’ who ultimately fell by the wayside. GAFA is fully aware of this, and uses acquisitions to maintain their edge while continuing to grow so rapidly.

In our latest report, “GAFA: What can we learn from their acquisition strategies [1]?” we look into GAFA’s mergers and acquisitions, from YouTube in 2006 through Whole Foods this past summer, and the trends they highlight.
