Jeffries & Co - Google, Apple or Microsoft are potential acquirers of Velti imho
Jefferies & Co. believes that Google Inc., Apple Inc., Adobe Systems, Microsoft Corp., and the large advertising agencies are potential acquirers of Velti Plc (NASDAQ: VELT)
We believe that the bigger players will be acquisitive in mobile marketing over time to complement their mobile advertising and desktop advertising/marketing platforms, said Peter Misek, an analyst at Jefferies.
Jeffries & Co had long ago felt that Velti could be potential acquisition target. Million dollar question remains when if it will ever happen but I suggest Google should buyout Velti as I find that match made in heaven imho
There was chatter of Velti acquisition few times in the past when the company's value was over $500 mln but so far nothing has happened so given the valuation being to attractive now ($235 mln) who knows these buyout vultures may be preying Velti. I don't want to see any buyout under $25/share.
