Axial Radar: How Consumers Stand to Benefit from Tech M&A

Axial Radar

Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!

Big tech gets a bad rap. And while we’re not here to debate whether “Meta” successfully flipped the script for Facebook, we do have a hot take: tech M&A has a tendency to benefit the end consumer.

A recent analysis of major tech acquisitions since 2005 revealed that consumers (and in some cases even the competition) stood to benefit in three distinct ways following an acquisition. The study focuses primarily on big tech, but the principles are very relevant to small and medium business M&A as well. Head over to this week’s featured Industry Trends article to read more about the rising tides of M&A for technology consumers.

Our featured buy-side members this week include a Florida-based private equity firm, a veteran-owned IT and telecommunications business, and a multi-family office. On the sell-side we’ll introduce you to a leading investment bank and a global M&A advisory firm.
