martinwolf  Valuation & Deal Insights

Q2 2015 MW VDI

With Q2 in full swing, it's the perfect time for a deep dive into the current valuation multiples and other financial statistics across the IT industry.


Today we release the latest edition of martinwolf's proprietary Valuation & Deal Insights, our quarterly newsletter tracking M&A activity across the IT industry.  


In this issue, Viewpoint by Marty Wolf as always highlights some key stories and developments that provide context for today's M&A climate.


Analysis includes a look at who could benefit from an acquisition of Salesforce (in the wake of today's reports of a failed Microsoft bid), how the last quarter's M&A statistics stack up against historical figures, and a focus on two key trends: a recent pattern of divestiture among large IT companies and recent share price drops for high flying companies like Twitter that missed their numbers.


In addition to Marty's column, expect an overview of year-to-date M&A by industry and geography, financial metrics by sector and an updated list of the top ten disclosed transactions so far this year across the various sectors we track.
