Dealmaking in the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) sector is expected to soar over the next 12 months, according to Mergers & Acquisitions’ Mid-Market Pulse (MMP). Transaction professionals surveyed in June gave the sector a score of 82.0 for the 3-month outlook and 80.6 for the 12-month outlook, much higher than the scores of 68.5 and 68.4 given to overall M&A.

Tech deals announced recently that demonstrate the sector’s momentum include the $13.7 billion purchase of Whole Foods by Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN), which is expected to trigger an explosion of M&A in grocery stores, delivery services and related businesses.
