Avnet intends to use its resources to make investments in embedded solutions, IoT and critical digital platforms as well as expand its footprint in newer markets. Moreover, acquisitions such as Premier Farnell and Dragon Innovation are likely to bolster its portfolio and expand global operations. Shares outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis.
