Software M&A overview: Ukraine, Poland, Russia, Belarus

Participation from non-tech players continued to rise, as they closed more deals than technology buyers for a third year in a row. Digital and advanced technologies have disrupted multiple industries, and traditional industry incumbents have increasingly used acquisitions as a means to leapfrog this process. Public markets have rewarded non-tech companies that have pursued acquisitions to address digital transformation, accelerate innovation and develop products that confront disruption/sector convergence within their industries. We believe that companies considering an M&A or financing process would benefit from approaching the right non-tech buyers and should proactively seek to approach these groups to create competitive tension and maximize value.
