M&A Outlook 2017: Mobility and the Internet of Things

Even after a recent record tech M&A run, dealmakers still had ambitious shopping plans in 2016. Across the globe, tech acquirers announced $500bn worth of transactions in the just-completed year, ranking 2016 as the second-highest annual total since the internet bubble burst. More than any other year, 2016 saw an expansion of buyers beyond the 'usual suspects,' as old-line companies got caught up in transforming their businesses through M&A.
