List of Mergers and Acquisitions by Big Tech

Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and other big technology firms have benefited greatly from very strategic mergers and acquisitions. These companies have strategic MOATs that drive valuation

  • The Network Effect. The network effect is one of the most powerful competitive advantages, and it is also one of the easiest to spot. The network effect occurs when the value of a particular good or service increases for both new and existing users as more people use that good or service (Instagram or Whatsapp when acquired by Facebook)
  • Low Production Cost: Companies that can deliver their goods or services at a low cost, typically due to economies of scale, have a distinct competitive advantage because they can undercut their rivals on price. (Pillpack acquired by Amazon)
  • High Switching Costs: Inconveniences or expenses customers incur in order to switch over from one product to another. This is very apt for enterprise software companies, such as data management or analytic tools (see Looker acquired by Google)
  • Intangible Assets. Some companies have an advantage over competitors because of unique nonphysical, or “intangible,” assets. Intangibles are things such as
    • Proprietary Data
    • Intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, and copyrights),
    • Government approvals
    • Marketing Prowess (low Cost of Acquisition) + Brand names,
    • Personnel Talent
    • Geographic advantage.


The list of their publicly-disclosed acquisitions is below. Accurate as of October, 2020
