A strong year, and a stronger future
Looking Back and Looking Forward

 

Dear Clients, Partners and Friends:

 

2012 marked our 16th year of business as a firm, and more than 115 successful transactions completed across seven countries. 

 

It was a time of global expansion for our firm as we opened a Bangalore office to better serve one of the world's most prominent M&A markets, expanded our proprietary MW IT Index® globally to include India and China, and sponsored key industry conferences in Bangalore and Dailan, China. Marty Tight

 

The year was also an important one for M&A and the IT Services industry as a whole. That's why the pace of 2012's middle market M&A activity in IT can only be described as brisk, and the outlook for 2013 is even better - especially for cross-border transactions, which are the most difficult nut to crack.

 

In addition, we saw dramatic differences between the soaring SaaS industry and the slowing IT Services space, as well as the growing importance and viability of cross-border M&A with the flourishing Indian and Chinese IT Services industries.

 

I've compiled my thoughts on these and other trends we saw developing in 2012 and what they mean for 2013 in a letter linked below. I encourage you to read it  - and of course, we always look forward to hearing your thoughts as well. 

 

The letter can be found here: http://bit.ly/YfoJ58.

 

 Happy selling.

Marty's Signature
