3Q15 Tech M&A and IPO Analysis Report

3Q15 Tech M&A and IPO Analysis Report

This IDC study provides an overview and analysis of M&A deals in 3Q15 across all major sectors of the information and communication technology (ICT) industry, including enterprise IT infrastructure, telecommunications, enterprise applications, IT services, semiconductors and components, and digital media. It also discusses the different business, financial, and technology trends affecting M&A activities in the ICT industry."After reaching its highest level ever of quarterly deal value in 2Q15 with $217.3 billion, it was expectable that tech M&A spending would normalize. Even so, the $109.8 billion spent by buyers of tech companies in 3Q15 is higher than the quarterly average in the past several years. Given the fact that this sum was reached, despite the poor performance of the stock markets this summer, the outlook for ICT M&A activity in the coming quarters remains positive as the main trends that have been pushing M&A activity to its current record level will continue to drive an intense pace of deal making." — Dan Yachin, research director, IDC EMEA Emerging Technologies
