At AGC we continue to see great promise and market activity throughout the semiconductor value chain for companies with differentiated, disruptive technology. Semiconductor IPOs have become increasingly rare due to market and customer concentration, and there has been significant consolidation amongst public semiconductor companies. This has led the $340-billion semiconductor industry, upon which all of the global IT economy rests, to become increasingly challenged in terms of innovation and organic growth. As a result, there is a great opportunity for high-value exits for innovative companies that have been able to achieve market acceptance and revenue growth despite the difficult fund-raising market. Areas of opportunity exist across the complete value chain including ICs as well as IP, EDA tools and equipment, and across high value applications such as Analog, Power, RF, MEMS, IoT, Security and Cloud Computing.
