The information technology industry consists of many ICT companies that improve business processes via networking and data systems. Often the ICT industry is separated in hardware and software providers. ICT consulting is a part of the ICT industry where a large number of consultants are active. Their service offering consists of improvements and customization for specific industries and clients situations.
Internet is around for some time now but the possible developments are still endless. Some trends we see range from the “cloud” to “software as a service”. Payment methods change as well and very often we see an upfront purchase being changed for a subscription model with monthly or periodic payments. The ICT M&A team of Corporate Finance is active in information technology. We can help you with buying an IT company or selling ICT companies of such type.
The diversity of the software industry is very large. We see buyers for specific industry related software companies. Very often these buyers look for companies with own intellectual property. We also see software providers open for a sale that provide software for specific business processes. It is important to automate more processes and improve the efficiency to get to a higher profitability. The scale on which software currently can be deployed is becoming more and more global. Hence, we expect more M&A for software companies in the future. The interest for software companies that want to sell their company will grow over time.

Internet becomes more and more integrated in the business processes and we expect this to be only the start of the trend. Internet portals or internet solutions will be used to improve the efficiency of processes within many industries. In the financial services industry more tasks will be performed by clients online. Only the activities where really advisers are required will be performed by humans. The rest will be automated and filled out by the clients theirselves. Cloud and saas solutions will be of interest for acquisitions and we expect to see a more significant M&A activity. In the future will see a higher demand for internet businesses for sale.
