20 Jul 2017

Robert S. Townsend, co-chair of Morrison & Foerster’s Global M&A Group, offered his expert analysis of the M&A outlook for the second half of 2017 in the Mergermarket article “Cybersecurity, Fintech, Analytics and IoT Deal Activity Expected to Grow in 2H17.”

According to Mr. Townsend, a so-called sectoral rotation is underway. He said he expects an increased participation by PE buyers later this year. He also noted that there are less deals in the mobile and semiconductor and semiconductor tech spaces, as well as a decline in combinations solely for efficiency and market share gains.
