Acquisition strengthens content offering to strategically important sectors including auto

TechInsights, an Oakley Capital (“Oakley”) and CVC Growth Partners portfolio company, is pleased to announce that it has acquired Strategy Analytics, a leading supplier of syndicated research across the global consumer technology sector.

Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, with a significant presence in Europe, Strategy Analytics supplies syndicated research across the global consumer technology sector, providing the deepest wireless and automotive coverage in the market.

TechInsights is widely recognised as the world’s authoritative information services platform for the global microelectronics sector, built from a core competency of heavily differentiated reverse engineering creating advanced technology and market analysis. TechInsights sells syndicated content to the world’s largest companies, underpinning investment in microchip development and innovation. Oakley Fund IV invested in TechInsights in 2021 alongside CVC Funds to support the company’s growth strategy through client and content acquisition, supplemented by strategic M&A.

TechInsights and Strategy Analytics enjoy highly complementary content and customers as well as high proportions of recurring revenues. Integrating Strategy Analytics’ content into TechInsights’ platform will strengthen the business’s market position as the go-to information provider for the semiconductor sector, while also providing cross selling opportunities. Adding Strategy Analytics will also enable TechInsights to further access strategically important industries including the auto sector, where carmakers are increasingly designing their own chips in the face of continuing supply chain disruption and as they strive to achieve a competitive advantage versus peers.

Strategy Analytics President Harvey Cohen said: “The team at Strategy Analytics is excited to be joining forces with TechInsights. The content we will create together and deliver through a single platform will further expand our ability to meet client needs, while our highly complementary customer base provides the opportunity to cross and upsell.”

TechInsights CEO Gavin Carter said: “We are rapidly increasing the content available on the TechInsights Platform, further strengthening our position as the most authoritative information provider to participants in the semiconductor sector. The more analysis, data and information we can provide the more informed our content becomes. I am delighted that Strategy Analytics content will now expand our Platform further, creating even more value for our customers under one single offering while extending access for TechInsights to important new sectors such as auto.”

Oakley Capital Founder and Managing Partner Peter Dubens said: “We see considerable opportunity for TechInsights to expand into new verticals as more companies seek actionable insights on the fast-growing semiconductor industry. Adding Strategy Analytics also demonstrates Oakley’s ability to help entrepreneurial businesses grow through M&A and to date we have helped our portfolio companies complete over 100 bolt-on acquisitions.”
