Mergers and Acquisitions
The IT Managed service market is a particularly active marketspace. Recurring revenues and clients who tend to stick with entrenched suppliers means that acquisition is an effective and relatively risk free way to grow a business.
In an active market, many deals are done ”off market” where a discreet approach and informal discussion can pay dividends
