Explaining why TMT M&A deals at highest level since 2006
The Equity Kicker
APRIL 1, 2014
Over the weekend the FT wrote that the value of TMT M&A deals in Q1 was $174bn, the highest level since 2006 and up 65% on the year ago period. The market is hot right now. No doubt about it. The $174bn includes a bunch of cable deals that aren’t relevant for the startup community, but even with those stripped out I’m sure the picture is still very healthy. ‘Is this a bubble?’ ’ I hear you say. I don’t think so.
