Tech M&A stumbles out of summer

This summer's momentum in the tech M&A market petered out as autumn arrived. Spending in the just-completed month of October slumped to its second-lowest monthly total of the year. Across the globe, acquirers announced just $17bn worth of tech and telco purchases in October, equaling only slightly more than half the average monthly deal value in the nine previous months. Overall, tech M&A spending in 2017 is on pace for the lowest full-year total in four years.
