  • Survey: Strategics to start acquiring again

    Anticipating the return of strategic acquirers, tech dealmakers have delivered their most bullish forecast in four years. For the first time since April 2014, two-thirds of respondents to the semiannual M&A Leaders' Survey from 451 Research and Morrison & Foerster expect an increase in tech M&A deal volume in the current year.

  • With GDPR looming, Google highlights security

  • Fresh meat on the street

    With Zscaler having completed its richly rewarding IPO last week, information security vendors have emerged as the main supplier of new names to Wall Street.

Major tech companies that had set the tone in the market for years found their influence waning. Other acquirers from either outside the tech sector or outside the US aren't picking up the slack. Against those declines, a new buyer of record emerged from the fringes at a record pace: private equity.

  • Bull market bypasses tech IPOs

    Although there's still a month remaining in 2017, most startups thinking about an IPO have already turned the calendar to 2018. That's true even though the tech IPO market has been pretty active recently. By our count, a half-dozen enterprise-focused tech vendors have come public in just the past two months. But despite the uptick in IPO activity, shares of the newly public companies haven't necessarily been ticking higher, at least not dramatically so.
