The health in the tech mergers and acquisitions market across Europe continues to perform well up but has started to show signs of stabilisation after a very strong first quarter of recovery.
The latest figures from Regent Partners showed that the market kept chugging along with 223 acquisitions last month with a combined value of $9.1bn.
There were only a couple of deals in excess of $1bn which knocked the three month average curve downwards, but overall the M&A market showed signs of gaining a stability with March and April leveling out, but at a level not seen at any time in the last year.
Highlights in the month included Capita Group's acquisitions of Right Documents Solutions Holdings for what could be up to £40m and web application firm Technophobia for £6.3m.
Security outfit G4S was also active picking up the Cotswold Group for £10.2m and Guidance Monitoring for an undisclosed sum.
