Sighting the acquired brand is Key here!
acquiring a niche brand in the test automation space and having specialist Marquee customers in the bag,Keysight strategy will be interesting to watch.This seems a natural cash and market accretive deal,but establishing brand in front of the customer will be tricky. Therefore a T&M company expanding wings will have to take a call what product or service the umbrella brand will stand for? Vishnu Goel T&M+919810101238

"Keysight intends to fund the Anite takeover through existing cash holdings."

 

Well, that is interesting as it represents the bulk of the cash on hand at Keysight.

That looks like a decent price for the Anite shareholders, given the sales and margins.

Will Keysight keep the brand? It is well established....
