March 05, 2015
With perspectives and industry-specific insights from its team of economists and industry professionals, McGladrey's Quarterly Healthcare and IT Industry Spotlights break down the important trends affecting M&A, private equity and IPO activity across both spaces. Powered by PitchBook and revamped to include additional data and analysis, the IT and Healthcare Spotlights include insights and stats like:
Strong, consolidation-centric healthcare M&A activity in the back half of 2014 is carrying into 2015, with a pivot to specialty niche-type providers a key growth driver.
M&A boomed in IT, with about $241 billion worth of transactions in the industry closed in 2014, and well over half of that sum in the software space.
PE-backed IT holdings are a hot commodity, with SBOs and strategic sales becoming preferred exit routes due to market dynamics and growth possibilities.
