Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) in Tech, Media, and Telecom (TMT) 2021 Themes - Thematic Research

Summary
If you want to understand the themes that drive an industry, simply look at the list of recent mergers and acquisitions (M&A). This report analyzes the disruptive themes that drove M&A activity across the technology, media, and telecoms (TMT) industry in 2021.

Key Highlights
- Despite the global pandemic, total M&A deal value in the global technology, media, and telecom (TMT) sector reached $1 trillion in 2021, up 30% from 2020. The total number of deals in 2021 reached 996, up 44% from 2020. A significant amount of M&A activity was driven by the growing popularity of SPACs (special purpose acquisition companies) in 2021. This helped to make 2021 the highest for deal value over the last five years.
- The big themes driving the top 100 TMT M&A deals by deal value announced in 2021 were connectivity and internet TV, accounting for $136 billion and $70 billion, respectively.
- The big connectivity deals were Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR)’s acquisition of Telecom Italia (TIM) for $37.2 billion and the acquisition of Shaw Communications by Rogers Communications for $20.8 billion. The most notable internet TV deal was the combination of WarnerMedia’s entertainment, sports, and news assets with Discovery. The other big thematic drivers were fintech, cybersecurity, healthtech, big data, artificial intelligence (AI), and cloud.
