Webinar: Tech M&A outlook

Contact: Brenon Daly

Last spring, respondents to the M&A Leaders’ Survey from 451 Research and Morrison & Foerster accurately predicted a dramatic surge in tech M&A activity. So what do they see coming now?

We’ll take a lively and thought-provoking look at the results from our latest survey in a special webinar on Wednesday, November 5 at 1:00pm EST. To register for the webinar, simply click here.

Among the key findings we’ll be discussing:

  • Nearly half of the respondents expect overall tech acquisition activity, which has been running at a record rate in 2014, to accelerate through the next half-year.
  • The percentage of survey respondents who say the tech M&A market is likely to be busier from now through next spring is three times higher than the 16% forecasting a decline in acquisition activity.
  • The outlook for private company M&A valuations has never been more bearish. A record 34% of respondents project that sale prices for startups will head lower from now through next April, compared with 26% who anticipate prices ticking higher.

Again, the webinar will be held on Wednesday at 1:00pm EST. Registration is complimentary and can be found here.
