2014 got off to a fast start when it comes to mergers and acquisitions of HR technology firms. Most of the companies involved in the transactions aren’t disclosing financials; however, from a sheer number-of-deals perspective, this puts the HR technology market well ahead of its pace in 2013, which saw about 12 visible acquisitions in total. This year’s current pace is on par with what was experienced in 2012, which saw more than 25 acquisitions in total and a similar number in the first quarter of 2012.
The 11 acquisitions made so far this year mirror a few of the industry’s more vibrant trends of late. While definitely telling of the acquiring vendors’ strategies, they are even more of a sign of things to come for the enterprise HR tech user.
