With the stock market in state of volatility, technology stocks shedding billions in valuation and economic outlook a mystery what should the owners of MSPs do when it comes to expanding via merger, acquisition, or private-equity infusion. There is no simple answer to that question. The reality is that investors still value managed services practices and organizations highly given their recurring revenue streams and potential to provide high returns for years to come. While M&A in 2022 continued its torrid pace with deals happening on a daily basis, there is no assurance that will continue in the coming year. MSPs that sold during the past year should feel good about the price paid for their businesses while those that did nothing can now focus on increasing efficiency and profitability to bolster their price in the coming year. So, this is no time to panic but time for action. In this session, experts will discuss the outlook for M&A going forward, why 2023 could bring in new investors and the opportunities for owners looking to expand via acquisition or sell their business to focus on new ventures. We will pick up where the main stage keynote left off with a drill down on the issues impacting the MSP owner and IT provider.
