Jon Peddie Research: Arm's IPO-background and possibilities
Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the leader for in-depth research in the field of computer graphics, has published a new report ahead of the Arm (initial public offering) IPO. The 'live' report will be updated as the IPO progresses.
Arm has traveled a rocky road since being acquired by Softbank. Its sales have grown modestly, and it has severely reduced its headcount. It has spun off its Chinese operations and set up a potential competitor, raised its prices in a soft market, and sued one of its biggest customers-how does that make Arm worth $50+ billion?
Foundational investors who use its products don't care-they want a strategy for growth.
In Jon Peddie Research's new report, written in conjunction with semiconductor IP expert David Harold, readers will learn what the facts are, what the pitfalls may be, who may disrupt, and the most likely strategic developments in: product, including a new silicon venture; pricing, designed to achieve a higher share of market value; attitude to China and the ongoing risk around Arm's biggest customer; and more.
Dr. Jon Peddie, president of JPR, noted, "Customers report they believe they can work their way through the new licensing arrangements Arm is going to impose, but are having trouble understanding why they should pay 40% more just so Arm looks good to Wall Street. Arm doesn't have a plan for organic growth and is trying to squeeze more out of its existing customer base. That will only work as long as they hold a monopoly position, which can't be forever, and maybe not much longer."
Companies discussed in the report include:

A total of 95,500,000 American depositary shares (ADSs) are being offered by the selling shareholder, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SoftBank Group Corp., in the IPO.
