The tech sector delivered September’s largest middle-market deal, as competition heated up for Twitch Interactive Inc., an online community of video gamers. Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) took home the prize for $970 million, marking the Internet company’s biggest acquisition ever. Nonetheless, September proved to be the slowest month of the quarter for deal volume. The month produced 156 completed deals, compared with 202 in August and 231 in July, according to Thomson Reuters. Some of the slackening was due to seasonal distractions, including dealmakers taking vacations in late August and sending kids back to school in September. Dealmaking grew in the third quarter, despite the sluggish end. Here are September’s completed deals.
