ADI completes integration of Linear Technology
Two years on from the acquisition of Linear Technology, the merger is complete. Stefan Steyerl, managing director of Germany for Analog Devices, was a key part of the deal and talks to Nick Flaherty about the integration.

“One of the reasons ADI did the acquisition of Linear was the portfolio of power management,” said Steyerl. “Other acquisitions such as Hittite have completed the RF side up to 100GHz, but one of the gaps we had was power management. There was never the goal of generating synergy effects on the cost side but growing the business and providing a complete portfolio. We have really finalised the integration at this stage and its quite a success story, bringing two relatively large companies together with $6bn in revenue and 15,000 employees.”

“Two years after ‘day one’ to have finalised the integration at all levels is a success story. Now you can’t see who was on the ADI side and the LTC side.  In the integration strategy, we did not assume it was always the ADI way, but the best of both.”

From a sales perspective, ADI has been quite successful with larger accounts in comms, industrial and automotive but not as deeply engaged with the wider customer base as Linear, says Steyerl. “So we have combined the sales teams on a global level, and we still have the channel partners such as Arrow that we work closely with.”
