Technology

Businesses in the technology sector are focused on delivering progress through innovation – and by its nature the market for tech ventures is constantly evolving.

Technology is often seen in the context of traditional IT such as networks, web services and software development, but the actual scope is far wider.

Cutting edge digital economy businesses make up a large part of the sector, but the range of what is considered a technology business does not end at the IT level. There is a significant crossover into other sectors such as healthcare, finance, media, industrials and beyond.

The metrics when marketing tech businesses are complex. In fact, the market shifts almost as fast as the technologies themselves.

Valuations are rarely driven by profits alone; price multiples for technology-based businesses depend on profitability, revenue, barriers to entry, peer group activity and more.

At Cavendish, our strength comes from our understanding of the valuation dynamics of the different sub-sectors.

Technology is global, it knows no geographical boundaries, so the worldwide reach of Oaklins is a winning card we are happy to play on behalf of our clients.
