1Q16 Tech M&A and IPO Analysis Report
This IDC study provides an overview and analysis of M&A deals in 1Q16 across all major sectors of the information and communication technology industry, including enterprise applications, enterprise IT infrastructure, digital media, telecommunications, IT services, and semiconductors and components."Driven by equity market volatility and rising concerns over global economic slowdown, tech M&A activity in 1Q16 saw a significant decrease from the record levels of 2015. At the same time, the tech IPO market went into deep freeze as not even a single tech company went public in the United States in the entire quarter. As buyers are now more reluctant to engage in big-ticket deals, IDC believes that 2016 will be a year of back to normal for tech M&A activity." — Dan Yachin, research director, IDC EMEA Emerging Technologies
