March 21 M&A Update Technology Sector: The 2020 upswing continues

After a successful market recovery in the third and fourth quarter of 2020, the M&A activity in the TMT sector remains high in the beginning of 2021. Despite the rising number of global infections and the national lockdown extension, the TMT sector shows an attractive market environment and a rise in valuation multiples. Current home office trends lead to a demand for companies focusing on communication software, fintech and e-learning platforms. In our M&A Update we analyze the current valuation environment of the TMT sector and address the following topics: 


  • What is the current valuation level in the TMT sector and its subsectors?  
  • What are key trends triggered by COVID-19 and how do they affect the stock and M&A market? 

Additionally, we introduce one of our recent TMT deals: The sale of the Canadian In Fidem, a cybersecurity consulting firm for cloud security, digital identity, risk management, security operations, digital forensics and cyber breach response, to Atos SE, a European company specialized in cybersecurity, cloud and high-performance computing with solutions for all industries.  

We hope you enjoy our review and look forward talking to you!
