The Technology, Media and Telecoms (“TMT”) sector remains one of the most active sectors globally, attracting continued significant investment and experiencing record levels of M&A activity and this is highlighted in the latest results. 2021 has been a record-breaking year so far where global deals activity has had its most active opening ever in H1 with transactions worth upwards of $3 trillion.

Listen as JP Ditty and Graham Pearce, our US and UK heads of TMT Corporate Finance respectively, discuss their latest views on the Global TMT Corporate Finance Outlook.

The UK had a strong start, with deals activity back to pre-pandemic levels where the success of the vaccine roll-out and a rapidly improving economic forecast means that business confidence remains high.

TMT deal activity continues to be a bright spot in the global M&A landscape as the technology sector proved resilient during the pandemic.
