Cisco Systems Files Suit To Keep The Acquisition Of Acacia Communications Alive

In 2019, Cisco Systems (CSCO) reached an agreement to acquire Acacia Communications (ACIA) for a value of 2.6 billion dollars, although in recent months this purchase has been complicated to the point that Acacia Communications has unilaterally decided to terminate said purchase contract. In response, Cisco has filed a lawsuit in Delaware for this transaction to be completed, since, according to the plaintiff company, all the requirements agreed to complete said agreement are met.

Cisco System's objective with this purchase is strategic, as it would allow them to increase its portfolio of optical systems. At the time, Cisco stated that the purchase of Acacia would allow them to meet the most demanding requirements of its customers.

After making these demands, the price of Acacia Communications has seen a spectacular rise since January 8, with a cumulative rise of 56.85%. Yesterday’s trading day saw a rise 31.45%, closing at 113.75 dollars per share, thus breaking the strong lateral that it has seen since the beginning of July 2019, with resistance at the level of 69 dollars per share.
