Mergers and Acquisitions in Information Technology and ICT
M&A in Information Technology and ICT
Information technology is a global sector. IT or ICT can be considered as one of the most diverse industries. In the information technology (IT) industry M&A is an important factor to grow. With the development of the European markets m&a in the IT industry gets more important. For this reason you want an m&a advisory that knows your business inside out. Information technology consists of many subsectors and the cfie M&A team in information technology knows these well.
Strategic acquisitions occur very often within the information technology landscape. Drivers for a strategic acquisition in IT can be; to grow market share, get access to a new technology, new products or services and economies of scale. In information technology the developments are ongoing. M&A specialists and IT Business owners need to consider strategic (M&A) partnerships continuously. Growth via M&A might be the right solution in many cases. Please ask for our IT M&A presentation if you want to know how we can help you with mergers and acquisitions in the IT industry.
M&A developments in the IT industry
The IT-industry is a sector with more than average M&A (mergers & acquisitions) activity. Knowledge is one of the most important value drivers in IT and a very important reason for companies in IT buying targets. Knowledge, or specific software can be sold by acquirers to their existing customer base hence creating additional revenue from the purchase of a company. Very often smaller technical oriented IT companies have developed a high quality application or other IT-driven technology but need the sales network of a larger organization in order to bring their products to market. In such a scenario it makes sense for the larger company to buy it's smaller counterpart. Hence, to buy or to sell a company in IT can be a way to have fresh knowledge and proprietary technology spread more quickly.
Another reason for M&A activity in IT that we have seen is the objective of a company to service their multinational customers better in more countries. We have helped large company owners (eg in IT-networking and Integration) buying smaller businesses abroad in order to be closer to their local customers. This compared to setting up an own support or sales force from scratch. Post-acquisition integration is important to ensure the newly acquired unit functions well.
In Europe we expect to see more consolidation occur as the markets of the individual countries are getting more connected. This increases competition and lowers prices, making it more difficult to compete for smaller businesses who can not allocate their overhead expenses over a large consultant or sales network and are not able to allocate their consultants or technicians as effective.
Mergers and acquisitions in IT security
M&A in IT security is difficult as the security market is growing quickly with a lot of independent providers. A large number of new IT security solutions and products come to market. Acquisitions in IT security are an interesting way to grow market share. Corporate Finance in Europe has the right M&A people that know the IT security industry well.
The large IT security producers often distribute their products via partnerships. In case of buy and build strategies it often is more effective to buy a business compared to starting a new business.
