With the U.S. electronics market already highly consolidated, acquisitions opportunities can be difficult to find. But there is still opportunity, particularly in the aftermarket services arena. Avnet completed two such acquisitions – Nexicore Services and Pinnacle Data Systems – in 2011. The global distributor also made some strategic international acquisitions. Globally, Avnet's 2011 revenues were $26.5 billion.
