Smaller tech M&A deals on the up

Recovery is under way in the general tech M&A market with targets tending to be the smaller companies, according to Jonathan Simnett, Director of tech M&A firm Hampleton Partners.

“In terms of how things are looking currently, overall we’re seeing very little change in the amount of tech M&A deals being done," he said.

"Tech deal volumes in the first third of 2020 are on par with both 2019 and 2018.”

He also noted that the size profile of acquired companies has declined sharply with around 90% of deals being for sub-$200m turnover companies, up from 60% in January.
