The iSPIRT M&A monitor shows that since 2010, there have been 159 M&A transactions involving Indian Technology Product companies, with a total estimated transaction value of $1.78B. Domestic transactions account for the lion share (70%) of the M&A activity by volume. However in value terms, the 48 inbound M&A transactions account for 63% of the estimated M&A transaction value, due to a higher average deal size ($23.3m versus $6.0m).
“In the Silicon Valley, technology M&A exits provide liquidity to all the stakeholders in the eco-system and help enable the next generation of tech startups. For the Indian product startup eco-system to flourish, it is critical to us to drive up the level of Technology Product M&A transactions”, said Sanat Rao, who leads iSPIRT’s M&A Connect Program, an initiative dedicated to facilitating and expediting the cross-border M&A process for Indian software product companies.
