2020 has been a year of rapid change in how we work and live – changes facilitated by technology. Despite fewer M&A megadeals and a lower volume overall, tech stands out as an increasingly active and competitive sector. To catch up on the latest trends in the fast-paced tech M&A market, Ben Potter speaks with Bay Area M&A partner Luke Bergstrom, who has shepherded many of the largest tech deals of the past decade. In this episode of Connected With Latham, Ben and Luke examine pandemic-related market trends, how strong capital markets and the rise of SPACs are influencing tech M&A deals, and how deal terms are acclimating to this new normal.
