(Bredemarket Premium) The mechanics of acquisitions

During my years in biometrics, my employer was acquired by another firm three times:

  • Printrak was acquired by Motorola in 2000.
  • Part of Motorola was acquired by Safran in 2009.
  • Part of Safran was acquired by Oberthur in 2017. (The combined entity was named IDEMIA.)

Acquisitions always cause a lot of changes, but one of these three acquisitions caused more changes than any of the others.
