With the year now firmly past the halfway point, it's clear that the economy's continually weak recovery is having a lasting effect on the M&A market and in the overall IT industry. To take a closer look, today we release our updated catalog of current valuation multiples and other financial statistics for IT Services, IT Supply Chain, BPO and Software companies.
As always, Marty Wolf opens the publication with a look at some of the leading trends affecting market conditions: the real risk of a new recession, thanks to underperforming indicators and impending political shocks to the system; the global effects of shifting currency values, perhaps the most overlooked factor in business performance; and the continued repositioning of veteran IT players into the cloud market, as evidenced by Microsoft's continued shift.
Marty concludes that the end result is that more companies are on the market than ever, and more ominously there are more broken processes than ever as well. Truly creating and protecting value requires achieving a successful outcome - as the biggest players are well aware.
In addition to the column, the publication includes an overview of historical M&A by industry and geography, financial metrics by sector and an updated list of the ten largest disclosed transactions so far this year across the various sectors we track.
