The technology, media and telecom deals market saw a strong finish to 2018. Looking ahead to 2019, expect M&A in the TMT sector to be driven by continued convergence, increased digitization and the expanding demand for data and AI.
Why do some large technology companies prosper while others suffer stagnant growth? The answer lies in a specific approach to value creation. Market makers are large tech companies that stand apart from the crowd by creating markets where none existed before. To forge their own profitable paths, they rely on a combination of shrewd deals, purposeful research and development and a culture that tolerates risk-taking and failure.
