Technology and E-Commerce
The mergers & acquisitions marketplace for technology companies & Internet based business models changes on an almost annual basis. IBA has been in the middle of this activity as a trusted intermediary since the infancy of the software, hardware, Internet, and E-Commerce industries. We have helped cutting edge entrepreneurs experience significant returns on their time & capital investments and unfortunately, have observed business owners who have failed to capitalize on market share and/or leading edge technologies who failed to sell when the mergers & acquisitions marketplace was most robust for their companies.
Our past transactions & clients in this niche have included medical software companies, database & inventory management software firms, educational software companies, graphic design & creative software development companies, software consulting & optimization firms, E-Commerce businesses, online educational programs, hardware service & repair businesses, hardware rental companies, internet service providers, internet directory services, digital photo services, circuit board manufactures, and component manufacturers for OEM’s.
The buyers for companies in these market segments generally come from one of three demographics groups. The first group is established domestic companies serving horizontal or vertical markets that wish to grow by acquisition or acquire complimentary technology or services. The second group is international companies wishing to manufacture products, develop or enhance software or products, or service products from overseas or establish a footprint in the United States. The final group is talented, experienced individuals transitioning from companies such as Microsoft, Amazon, Cisco, Google, and Intel to take the helm of a business in pursuit of financial, executive leadership, or creative opportunities. We encourage companies & individuals who fall into one of these three groups to participate in our buyer database, as opportunities in these market segments traditionally enter & exit the mergers & acquisitions market in a short time period.
Please contact our office if you have any questions regarding the representation we provide our clients or if you would like to schedule a time to meet with an IBA professional with experience in the sale of Internet, E-Commerce, software, hardware or technology companies.
