Apple's Acquisition Spending Exploded in Q1 2014
According to details gleaned from Apple's latest quarterly 10-Q filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the Cupertino, California-based tech giant spent a staggering sum of $525 million on acquisitions in the last quarter of 2013 (Apple's Q1 of 2014).
Acquisition spending was almost double the amount spent during the same quarter of 2012. To proponents of Apple's current corporate aims and objectives, it's money well-spent and a clear sign of Apple's desire to innovate through new talents and resources in this new year.
Most of the acquisitions were small. They included the purchases of PrimeSense, Topsy Labs Inc., search engine Cue, and Broadmap, a mapping software company.
