  • Big prints boost May M&A

    For the third consecutive month, tech M&A spending ticked higher as the pace of multibillion-dollar deals accelerated in May. Lifted by a recent-record number of 12 transactions valued at more than $1bn last month, total spending on tech and telecom deals around the globe hit $62bn. That's twice as high as the same month last year, and matches the highest monthly total since the start of 2017. More importantly, May totals keep 2018 almost on pace for full-year record M&A spending.

    Reversing a recent trend of corporate buyers reaching into private equity portfolios for larger companies, the buyout owners of BMC found an acquirer for the infrastructure software giant in the form of another buyout group.

  • TITUS goes from bootstrapped to buyout with Blackstone

    Private equity firm Blackstone has picked up a majority stake in TITUS, marking an unconventional bootstrapped-to-buyout exit for the 12-year-old data classification startup.

Once Blackstone owns TITUS, the company will have several adjacent markets that it could buy its way into.

  • Preeminent PE: The new Masters of the Tech Universe, Part 1

    Forget Oracle, IBM or any of the other big-name, publicly traded acquirers that – until now – have always set the tone in the tech M&A market. If a tech deal printed in 2017, the buyer is more likely a private equity firm than any of the well-known serial acquirers on the Nasdaq and NYSE. This is the first time in the history of the multibillion-dollar tech M&A market that financial buyers have been busier than these strategic acquirers.

  • PE shops make the market in July

    Spending on tech deals in July hit its second-highest monthly total so far this year, driven by the widespread dealmaking of PE firms. Buyout shops figured into eight of last month's 10 largest acquisitions, either as a seller or a buyer. Our research shows that PE firms accounted for some 40 cents of every dollar spent on tech transactions last month. Not that PE firms were necessarily paying big money in their deals. Not one of July's 15 biggest prints got a double-digit valuation.

  • The Disruptive Role of Integration PaaS and APIs in the New Hybrid Integration Platform Market

    Integrating all the technology needed to run a modern enterprise has dramatically changed in recent years. No longer are data and application integration the primary challenges, nor is business-to-business integration limited to mere document exchange. The era of cloud, mobility, social networking, big data and the Internet of Things has spawned new markets that require a new approach to integration -- an approach we refer to as hybrid integration.
