Market Updated: It Services in Western Europe – Q2 2021
The M&A market in Western Europe remains hot as buyers continue to show interest in the region, due largely to the expectation that Europe will reach an annual ICT spending of close to $1 Trillion by the end of the year. We expect the underlying M&A trends in Western Europe to continue given the region’s growing interest in IoT and cloud solutions from traditionally under digitized industries like manufacturing and healthcare.
Second quarter recorded 188 transactions, a 72% increase compared with Q2 2020. Deal volumes and valuations remain high as both strategic and financial buyers have been aggressive over the past six months acquiring software development, cloud analytics, and digital commerce service companies across all countries in Western Europe.
7MA has completed numerous M&A transactions for companies with headquarters in Western Europe and has developed unparalleled deal expertise and knowledge of the industry trends, valuation trends, and most active strategic and financial buyers.
