2018 Tech M&A Outlook

After accurately forecasting a slowdown in tech M&A last year, senior investment bankers are expecting a rebound in dealmaking in 2018. As they looked at their current pipeline for the coming year, nearly seven out of 10 respondents (69%) to the annual 451 Research Tech Banking Outlook Survey said it is fuller now than it was a year ago, on a dollar basis. The outlook for 2018 is more in line with typical forecasts than last year's survey, when a post-recession low of just half of the bankers indicated fuller pipelines.

To help you navigate this changing M&A landscape, join Brenon Daly, 451 Research’s Director of Financials, for a look ahead to activity in 2018. Drawing on data and insight from across 451 Research, our annual Tech M&A Outlook webinar will highlight specific trends in key enterprise IT markets – including information security, software, mobility and IoT -- that will shape dealflow and valuations in the coming year.

Webinar: Finding Success in Tech Careers: Understanding Where Gender Viewpoints Diverge

As part of an ongoing partnership, WITI (Women in Technology International) and 451 Research have joined together to conduct a survey on how gender viewpoints differ in the workplace. The survey, conducted in June and July 2017 and completed by 1,901 respondents currently working in a science, technology, engineering or math (STEM)-related field, touched on a variety of topics to better understand what factors have helped shape employees’ careers and what challenges they face in the workplace. To better understand where gender might result in different points of view, the survey was fielded to both women and men.

Join 451 Research Vice President Melanie Posey for an interactive webinar as she walks through the key findings of the report.
