Win $500 - What Company Will Be Acquired Next?

More consolidations/acquisitions were one of the main themes predicted for 2017.

Make a prediction on who will be acquired next and win $500.

We ran a similar thread in 2013: Win $500 - What Security Company Will Be Acquired Next?, nobody won the $500 (since VideoIQ was acquired next but no one picked them), so we will make that same offer again, similar rules to the previous contest:

  • Acquisition target has to be a company previously mentioned on IPVM
  • One guess per person for first acquisition
  • Must guess using your real name (you can guess "Undisclosed", but won't be eligible to win)
  • If multiple people guess the same company the pot will be split evenly
  • Payment via PayPal

Also, what will be the largest acquisition in 2017? (No prize for this one, just guesses)
