United States: Tech M&A Leaders Survey Results
Last Updated: May 3 2017

Morrison & Foerster is pleased to share with our clients and friends the results of our semi-annual M&A Leaders Survey, which takes the temperature of company executives, corporate development officers, lawyers, bankers, and other dealmakers focused on the technology sector.

According to the findings:

  • Slightly more than half of the respondents (52%) forecast that deal flow will top last year's level, more than three times the 15% of respondents who indicated that year-over-year activity would decline in 2017.
  • Financial buyers are expected to play a major role in overall market activity in 2017, with 54% forecasting an increase in private equity activity compared with 2016.
  • Four out of 10 (41%) forecast that President Trump's future economic policies will stimulate dealmaking, almost twice the 22% that said his policies will slow M&A.
