As we predicted in Q1, deal activity has continued to increase in Q2 and the technology market remains very strong for M&A and public trading and optimism for future growth remains very healthy across all the technology sectors we track.
M&A continues to be driven by strong levels of investment by private equity (directly and through portfolio companies) and large strategic corporates making sizeable, transformational acquisitions to step up their portfolios. We expect to see this continue in private markets for the remainder of 2021.
The momentum in the IPO market indicates a positive step in the global economic recovery, and Pandemic-resilient subsectors with proven sustainable growth trajectories continue to be the front runners.
In our Global Technology Market Review, we analyse valuations, M&A activity and broader trends in the key technology markets of enterprise software, technology services and cybersecurity. We hope that you enjoy this report and look forward to discussing the data and underlying themes with you. If you are contemplating fundraising, exit or growth through acquisitions, please do get in touch.
