“Thought Report” on Technology M&A in Europe

An Overview of European Tech-Sector M&A Activity

Palo Alto, CA – June 16, 2020 – Menalto Advisors is pleased to announce its new “Thought
Report” on the topic of “Technology M&A in Europe.”

While Silicon Valley is generally viewed as the epicenter of the technology industry, there are a
growing number of active tech hubs around the world, including many in Europe. VC
investment in European private companies has sharply increased during the past decade, which
has led to substantial M&A activity throughout Europe. Many of the largest global technology
companies, for example, have recently acquired numerous European startups.
This trend has benefited our practice as we have completed many M&A transactions in Europe
in recent years, including selling European tech startups to buyers such as Apple, Google, and
Facebook. To support this trend, we also recently moved one of our bankers to Europe.
Although the pandemic has caused a recent slow-down in M&A activity (both in Europe and
globally), we remain upbeat on the long-term outlook for European tech acquisitions. As a
result, we thought it was a good time for a Thought Report on Technology M&A in Europe. The
100+ page report includes:

  • An overview of technology M&A in Europe with a focus on acquisitions of European-
    based tech companies
  • A review of acquisitions of private European tech companies by the major tech buyers
    (Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc.)
  • Highlights of M&A and startup activity in several specific European technology hubs
    (London, Berlin, Zurich, Dublin, etc.)

To request a copy of the report, please contact one of the senior bankers at Menalto Advisors
or send an email request to info@menaltoadvisors.com.
