Tech As a Catalyst for M&A Activity

Tuesday, January 18, 2022
1 Hour

According to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence, 2021 was the highest year on record for overall M&A activity, with aggregate transaction value reaching $4.5 trillion. Central to this was tech themed M&A.  According to 451 Research M&A KnowledgeBase, the total value for tech transactions announced in 2021 topped the $1 trillion thresholds for the first time.

In this webinar, experts from S&P Global Market Intelligence and 451 Research will explore the drivers behind the recent surge in M&A activity, with a particular focus on tech, in addition to a demonstration of the latest workflow tools designed to support tech M&A deal making workflows. Specifically the webinar will cover:

  • Overall M&A activity, through different lenses (i.e. sectors, regions, valuations, strategic vs. financial sponsor)
  • Deep dive into the key drivers behind the recent surge in tech M&A, including the hottest tech sectors, which group of acquirers are leading the way, and what valuations they are currently paying.
  • Discuss the broader trend of ‘digital transformation’ and what this means for M&A in the coming years.
  • Demonstration of how to use the complementary platforms of Capital IQ Pro and the 451 Research M&A KnowledgeBase to support the M&A process, from target identification to forming indicative valuations
