The Global Technology Market Review – Q1 2022
Despite a backdrop of some macroeconomic uncertainty, private M&A activity within the global technology market saw a record quarter for deal volumes. This was delivered on the back of continued adoption of cloud technologies, increased focus on strategic tuck-ins, investment into hybrid work environments and software vendors seeking to deepen their security posture.
As public market valuations cooled slightly and saw a notable slowdown in activity, there was an increased focus from larger PE funds in public to private transactions. March showed early signs of market recovery and it is expected that the public markets will normalise later in 2022.
