1 S 2014: Acquisitions in technology companies on the rise

Integral service around a transaction
BY : Diego GutiérrezSeptember Wed, 2014
thLos inversores corporativos mejoran su confianza en Europa y optan por el crecimiento vía adquisiciones de empresas tecnológicas alcanzando el máximo desde el 2012. El primer semestre de 2014 con 94 operaciones presenta la mayor cifra de adquisiciones de empresas tecnológicas desde el 2012.


“Después de un repunte sufrido en el último semestre de 2013, esta cifra es bastante esperanzadora ya que nos muestra el aumento de confianza de los inversores corporativos. Ante la dificultad de crecimiento orgánico por la situación de los mercados, los inversores corporativos optan por la vía del crecimiento inorgánico” comenta Diego Gutierrez de Abra-invest.

Entre los sectores más activos en compras reconocemos el software, el sector de la publicidad y el de analitycs.

En España también ha habido operaciones en el sector software, una de estas ha sido la compra de Telémaco Sistemas by Ticketea. Telémaco se dedica al  desarrollo de software para grandes eventos como las recientes Copa Davis celebradas en España, el Conde de Godó o el Mundial de Balonmano.

Technology Data Analytics
for M&A
Advanced data anlytics is a weapon". Intelfin is an artificial intelligence tool we use for investing and creating value in SMEs through competitive analytics and the enterprise environment.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
Training Methodology
We have developed training programs in an innovative set-up which guarantees our teams the acquisition of technical competences both in the field of corporate finance and in the field of psychology, that is much needed when it comes to negotiation processes.

Hence, we extend best practices identified internally in an efficient and rapid manner among our members.
