26 Apr 2021

UK Tech M&A activity has got off to a flying start in 2021 with the number of deals in Q1 up a massive 28% with 268 deals announced.

Notable buyers include Accenture, Wipro, Cloudstrike, ATI Global, Microsoft, Naviga and Medallia. PE backed buy-and-build deals also jumped with the likes of Access, Civica, Clearcourse and OneCom all very busy. As a result, valuations continue to rise and now average over 22x EBIT. Its clearly a great time to be an owner of a tech business.
