Technology Deal of the Week

Charted Territory
Deal volume held steady in September, compared with September 2012. A slight dip in volume for the services sector (down 2.2% vs. a year ago) was made up in the technology sector (up 20.7%) for a 6.6% increase overall. That’s not much to cheer about, though, if you consider that in the third quarter last year, M&A activity slowed considerably, down 15% compared with Q2:12 deal volume. We’re pulling together data for Q3:13 and will be reporting on the results in a few weeks. Stay tuned.
