Every owner is curious about the value of their business, but very few understand how valuations are determined. Likewise, few business owners and senior channel leaders understand the process of selling a business or how to maximize the transaction value and proceeds of a sale. Every senior leader and owner must determine their path forward to enhance the value of a technology business in preparation for an eventual exit. An exit is just a reality no matter closely tied to the business the founder is today or how much the ownership loves the organization they have built. This session will explore M&A trends in the IT and telecommunications services industry including valuations of public technology businesses and valuations of privately held businesses as determined from previous M&A transactions.

Attendees will learn about the following:

  • The acquirers of technology services businesses, their motivations and tactics
  • Factors that determine the value of technology services businesses
  • The hierarchy of value among technology service businesses from distributor to MSP
