Government IT Services 2018 Year in Review

Published on: 04/18/2019

As we closed these pages last year, we hypothesized that the remarkable pace of Government Information Technology (IT) mergers and acquisitions (M&A) witnessed in 2017 would continue throughout 2018, with the very real possibility that record levels of deal volume and value would be surpassed. This was proven to be the case, with total deal volume up 3% from 2017’s record levels. We further predicted that the strength of the fiscal outlook, combined with relative market stability, would encourage what we then coined the “completion phase” of large-scale consolidation in Government IT Services. Last year closed with transformational deal value in excess of $18 billion.
