M&A trends in the ICT market
To the PDF

Our annual Information Technology Outlook looks at trends, company valuations and market activity over the last 12 months. This year, this is clearly influenced by the global COVID 19 pandemic. Which has had a variety of effects - both negative and positive - on the technology market.

The rapidly accelerated digitisation of business processes and the widespread use of home offices have led to a significantly increased demand for corresponding software solutions. Market participants who recognised this trend early on were able to benefit greatly from the crisis. 

In 2020, the M&A market showed a strong return in the second half of the year after a weak first half. In the currently very dynamic market environment, targeted expansions of the product range through acquisitions or the acquisition of know-how are an effective instrument for creating or maintaining competitive advantages. 

In addition to the overview of M&A activity, in this year's Information Technology Outlook we would also like to look at the trends and market developments that will have a significant influence on buyers and sellers as strategic drivers. 

We wish you an exciting read and will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have on the topics of company sales and acquisitions, valuation and corporate finance.
