According to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence, 2021 was the third highest year on record for overall M&A activity, with aggregate transaction value $4.1 trillion in. Central to this was 2021 being the second highest year on record for acquisitions of tech targets, with $597 billion in aggregate transaction value.

• Deep dive into the key drivers behind the recent surge in tech M&A, including the hottest tech sectors, which group of acquirers are leading the way and what valuations they are currently paying.
• Discuss the broader trend of ‘digital transformation’ and what this means for M&A in the coming years.
