Hello, and happy Friday. Time for another roundup of the week in tech M&A.

Exits

Box acquired Airpost, a two-year-old Canadian startup whose platform helps companies monitor cloud app usage by their employees. Terms were not disclosed.

Not strictly tech, but it could be the biggest acquisition so far this year: Bristol-Meyers Squibb has acquired two-year-old Flexus Biosciences, in a deal that could be worth $1.25 billion when all is said and done.

ThredUp, a used-clothing marketplace, has agreed to acquire specialty brands retailer Kindermint. Terms were not disclosed.

Twilio picked up 2FA service provider Authy, for an undisclosed amount.

In all-but-a-done-deal news, it appears Apple has picked up music plug-in developer Camel Audio.

Google grabbed Toro, makers of a platform that helps developers promote their apps on Facebook. Terms were not disclosed.

For the entrepreneurs in the house

Must reads

In perhaps the biggest news of the week, the FCC has voted to regulate broadband as a public utility—a win for net neutrality.

Just for fun
