New research from TechMarketView

As ever, in conjunction with our good friends at Regent Partners, we’re keeping our fingers on the pulse of the tech M&A scene (and, yes, there’s still a pulse!) to bring you the Q2 2009 edition of IndustryViews M&A. In this quarter’s review you will find comment on some of the deals that are reshaping the UK software and IT services industry, and our latest thoughts on company valuations.

Regent executive chairman Peter Rowell reported that acquisition activity declined in Q2 2009, maintaining the trend set at the end of last year, though briefly interrupted by a small rise in Q1. However, this reflected a low level of deals in May rather than continuing decline during the quarter. We also saw three tech IPOs in the quarter, the first for the year. The question is, have we yet reached the nadir?

Dare we remind you that IndustryViews M&A and companion programmes IndustryViews Quoted Sector (out last week) and IndustryViews Private Equity (updated later this month) are only available to clients of the TechMarketView subscription service. Puni Rajah (prajah@techmarketview.com) will be delighted to tell you more.
