It was an extraordinary year of M&A activity. The industry has experienced a crazy-high volume of technology services transactions for a good chunk of time now, and 2022 was no exception, despite whisperings of a recession.

Over the past few years, hundreds of private equity firms and larger MSPss have acquired and snapped up other providers. Why?
