The overall reliance on technology in the pandemic has propelled tech companies’ imperative for growth to a new level, supported by high stock market valuations and cash reserves, with M&A activity likely to accelerate in 2021.
The panel will discuss specific issues involved in tech M&A, including intellectual property, valuations, deal structures, risk mitigation and talent, as well as address questions from the audience.
