M&A activity has surged in H1 2021, fuelled by both the availability of investment capital from Private Equity and the increased political and economic confidence prompted by the success of the global vaccination take-up.

In its latest report, Ciesco, a specialist M&A advisory firm operating in the tech, digital, media and marketing sectors, said there were 832 transactions announced in H1 2021, a 46 percent increase year-on-year from 2020. Of these, 59 percent of deals were in the UK and US.

The firm, which combines senior-level industry practitioners with sector-specialist investment bankers, also found that the overall disclosed value of deals has increased from $25.2 billion in H1 2020 to $97.8 billion in H1 2021.
