Your current M&A market

2017 M&A activity in the sector fell after a strong year in 2016. Despite these overall falls, we observed continued demand for cloud consulting capabilities, and rising demand for cyber security, advanced data analytics and robotic process automation advisory businesses.

In many of these hot spaces, skilled talent is short - which is driving strategic M&A and premium valuations.


2018 outlook

Over the next year, we anticipate a continued rise in deal flow related to companies that advise on utilizing the latest advanced technologies. We expect buyers to look for opportunities to build functional and sector-specific RPA skills organically and via acquisition. The prevalence of digital disruption across industries and functions will continue to attract interest in technology services from a diverse set of strategic buyers. Furthermore, the attractive growth prospects in the space will also support strong financial buyer activity.
