Tech M&A Mid-Year Review – Big Spenders Return and IPOs Set Records

Presented by

Brenon Daly, Research Vice President, and Scott Denne, Senior Analyst

About this talk

In this webinar, hear about the current boom in Tech M&A spending and what it may mean for the rest of 2018. Spending on tech acquisitions in the first half of this year has surged -- 70% higher than the same period last year. Despite facing sharp competition from non-tech acquirers and private equity buyers, enterprise buyers are back in the game and on pace to do more tech deals this year than any year in history. On top of that, the other exit for startups is busy, too, with the pace of enterprise technology IPOs hitting a post-recession record. Join Brenon Daly, who leads 451 Research’s M&A practice, and Scott Denne, a senior M&A analyst, for an update on the first half of 2018 and what we expect to shape dealflow for the rest of the year. They’ll highlight trends in deal activity with insight from 451 Research analysts as well as 451 Research’s M&A KnowledgeBase, the industry’s only tech-focused M&A database, and: •Take a look at trends in both M&A activity and valuations. •Discuss implications for buyers, sellers and investors. •Dissect this year’s IPO boom and forecast which startups might be looking to join the parade of new offerings.
