WY Partners is excited to announce the release of our 2021 M&A in review report.

In 2021 M&A at the intersection of media and technology has gathered pace with a record number of deals closing. Following on from the uncertainty of 2020, when many deals were shelved and investment plans put on hold, 2021 has seen capital deployed at the fastest pace since we started WY Partners 7 years ago.

In this report we explore what has driven this frantic activity and look to offer our view of how it will translate into 2022 and beyond. We review the M&A landscape and activity across the key sectors in 2021, provide a detailed review of M&A across major buyer groups, and provide our review of some of the standout sectors which have driven deals in 2021.
