Panel: Technology + innovation M&A- cautious optimism

According to Mergermarket data, M&A in the technology sector totaled USD 115bn in the first half of 2023, a 52% year-on-year decline. Despite the market slowdown and continued macroeconomic uncertainties, the outlook for the technology M&A sector remains cautiously optimistic, with cash-rich financial sponsors engaging in take-private deals with companies whose valuations have decreased dramatically since 2021, and corporates pursuing strategic acquisitions. At a more regional level, Miami was home to the world’s largest technology exit in 2022 and is quickly establishing itself to become America’s next big tech hub, particularly in AI and crypto, with founders and funders setting up shop in the city. What is next for the industry? Our panel of investors will discuss dealmaking trends in the sector and how they are continuing to capture opportunities for long-term strategic growth. 

  • Market outlook: What have been the main drivers of deal flow in the technology M&A industry, what are the top sectors attracting M&A activity and what are strategic acquirers looking for?
  • Will the sector continue to see an increase in take-privates, divestitures, and shedding of non-core assets in 2024?
  • Crypto: will there be more M&A opportunities as the sector consolidates?
  • How are GPs and corporate acquirers using AI to maximize operational efficiencies such as through investment diligence and predictive analytics?
