MSP Sales, Mergers and Acquisitions

Essential Resources For MSP Sales, Mergers & 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.
