2017 was a busy year for language industry deal making. While there was no mega merger or truly transformative acquisition, Slator covered nearly 40 transactions across all verticals and geographies.
There was a general perception of a slight uptick in deal pricing as the industry benefited from macroeconomic tailwinds boosting demand. That said, there seems to be a consensus among owners, operators, and financial investors alike that the current M&A environment is, if not at its peak, at least very favorable for sellers.
This 16-page report contains an analysis of the 2017 language industry M&A landscape and an outlook for 2018. It also contains a full list of all deals covered on Slator including price, earnings or revenue multiples paid where available, sector, country, type (trade sale, private equity investment, merger), and more.
