European technology sector M&A activity holds strong

March M&A M&A activity in the European technology sector remained strong during March, according to the latest statistics from corporate finance firm Regent Partners. Although the monthly deal volume dipped slightly on the first two months of the year, activity levels remain above average compared with the last two years. Meanwhile, at the end of March 2019, the aggregate deal value reflected a slight increase overall.

Valuation multiples, compared to the Price/Sales ratio, were down from 2.0x in February 2019 to 1.6x in March. In the same period, the Price/EBITDA ratio rose from 8.8x in February to 9.5x in March. Meanwhile, valuations of listed technology companies, represented by the UK TechMark index, rose by another 1.5% during March 2019.

HVPThere were a number of interesting UK SITS deals during March, including Civica’s acquisition of TranSend, Rigby Group’s sale of FluidOne to Livingbridge and Servelec’s disposal of its Technologies and Controls arm.
