Since beginning to track the number of publicly highlighted merger, acquisition, and investment (M&A+I) events in the eDiscovery ecosystem, ComplexDiscovery has recorded 419 M&A+I events between November 2001 and today.

While not all-inclusive due to the fact that M&A+I events are not always publicly disclosed and some announcements are intent-based and not the actual completion of an event, the abridged listing of M&A+I events maintained by ComplexDiscovery notes key industry events by sharing event date, company involvement, and event amount (if known).

Based on an aggregate review of the abridged listing through the lens of Q1 2020, the following findings, data points, and tracking charts may be useful for understanding M&A+I activity patterns in the eDiscovery ecosystem from January 1, 2020, through March 29, 2020.

Five Key Findings

  • There have been at least nine M&A+I events in the eDiscovery ecosystem during Q1 2020. (Chart 1)
  • January was the most active month in Q1 2020 for M&A+I events with at least five total events.  (Charts 1 and 2)
  • February and March were the least active months in Q1 2020 for M&A+I events with two known events in each month. (Charts 1 and 2)
  • The investment pulse rate for the three months of Q1 2020 appears to be significantly lower than the Q1 investment pulse rate in 2019. (Chart 2)
  • Q1 2020 investment pulse rate appears to be the second-lowest Q1 investment pulse rate in the last five years. (Chart 2)
