Banner Year Ahead for Twin Cities Tech M&A

Share Article

2012 will be a banner year for M&A among Twin Cities-area software, IT, Internet and related technology companies, due to a perfect storm of trends and events, led by changing tax laws. As a Top 20 Technology Center, Minneapolis has been chosen to host a Merge Briefing, an executive seminar sponsored by Corum Group designed to help CEOs, owners and investors understand the latest trends in tech M&A, as well as the overall process and the pitfalls that claim up to 80% of self-managed M&A processes.

Company owners and investors in and around the Twin Cities who want to take advantage of the changing tax laws need to act quickly – their first move should be getting educated

The world's most up-to-date executive Tech M&A seminar is coming to the Twin Cities March 27 at the Radisson Plaza hotel in Minneapolis. The Merge Briefing conference comes during what is predicted to be a “banner year” for tech M&A for software, IT, internet and related technology companies in the Twin Cities.

“2012 has a perfect storm of trends in disruptive technology, tax changes, industry consolidation, new buyers, and record cash reserves held by major technology companies, all of which will make it best year since the dot-com era for M&A in software, Internet, IT and related technologies,” said Corum Director Rob Schram. “Company owners and investors in and around the Twin Cities who want to take advantage of the changing tax laws need to act quickly – their first move should be getting educated.”

The Merge Briefing is a 90-minute executive briefing providing a current M&A market update, including trends, valuations and more, as well as a brief overview of the tech M&A process: "8 Steps to an Optimal Outcome."

“Most self-managed M&A efforts will be unsuccessful, draining valuable resources at best, and ending in complete disaster at worst,” notes Schram. “Your first merger is not a time for on-the-job training, so it’s worth it to spend just these 90 minutes learning about the process.”

Schram, who will lead the seminar, has over 30 years of executive and entrepreneurial technology experience, having founded and sold several companies and engaged in two IPOs.

When: Tuesday, March 27, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM, registration at 1 PM
