MW IT Index� Reveals Mixed Bag for IT Valuations in 2012
Global IT Outlook Improves for 2013


The latest MW IT Index� (Global Edition), released today by martinwolf | M&A Advisors, shows that while the global IT industry produced mixed results in 2012, prospects for most sectors and geographies in 2013 is looking up.


The Index is the first-ever proprietary analysis of the enterprise values of IT companies in key sectors and geographies, including the United States, India and China.


In the United States, SaaS enterprise valuations were up approximately 20% for the year, largely due to growth in the first two quarters. The sector experienced substantial acquisition activity as both traditional software companies and major SaaS companies jockeyed for leadership positions. In fact, 7 of the 20 companies tracked by the Index in 2012 were acquired in 2012.


While the IT Supply Chain sector suffered in 2012, VARs and technology solutions providers are continuing to move up the value chain and acquire new areas of expertise to attract new and larger customers. Still, regardless of whether they go big or go niche, they must look to the cloud for a new lease on life.


In India and China, cross-border acquisitions are on the rise, as companies in both markets look to globalization to increase growth and influence. Meanwhile, the economy in both countries is rebounding, which bodes well for companies in both geographies.
