European tech valuations climb despite muted deal flow

chartEuropean TMT M&A activity ended the final quarter of 2018 with the number of deals announced in December remaining almost unchanged from November, according to latest data from corporate finance firm Regent Partners. However, transaction valuation multiples jumped during the month with the aggregate Price/Sales ratio up from 1.4x in November to 1.9x in December and the Price/EBITDA ratio up from 9.0x in November to 9.9x in December.

The UK tech M&A market was quite lively in December, with public sector ‘unicorn’ Civica rounding out the year with its seventh acquisition. Meanwhile, newly-floated, self-styled ‘digitally-native technology services company’, The Panoply, set off on the acquisition trail, buying digital agency Deeson (see The Panoply quick to secure first acquisition).

And we were delighted to report that Little British Battler-cum-Great British Scaleup prisoner self-service and offender management solution specialist, The Unilink Group, has acquired UK national probation case management system developer, Beaumont Colson, acknowledging the inextricable link between prisons and probation.

All of our UKHotViews commentary on the UK tech M&A scene is available to TechMarketView Foundation Service clients and to entrepreneurs and tech professionals subscribing to our UKHotViews Premium service by searching on the keyword 'acquisition' in the UKHotViews archive.
