A short percentage-based assessment of the qualitative benefit of the recent post highlighting eDiscovery ecosystem investments during Q4 2022.

Editor’s Note: Since beginning in November 2001 to track the number of publicly highlighted merger, acquisition, and investment (M&A+I) events in the eDiscovery ecosystem, ComplexDiscovery has recorded 528* M&A+I events.

While not all-inclusive due to the fact that M&A+I events are not always publicly disclosed and some announcements may not represent event completion, the abridged listing of M&A+I events maintained by ComplexDiscovery notes key industry events by sharing event date, company involvement, and known event amounts.

Industry Update

eDiscovery Mergers, Acquisitions, and Investments in Q4 2022


Based on an aggregate review of the abridged listing through the lens of Q4 2022, the following findings, data points, and tracking charts highlight information that may be useful for understanding M&A+I activity patterns in the eDiscovery ecosystem from October 1, 2022, through December 31, 2022.

Five Key Findings

  • There have been at least two publicly noted M&A+I events in the eDiscovery ecosystem during Q4 2022. (Chart 1)
  • October and November were the most active months in Q4 2022 for M&A+I events with at least one event during each month. (Charts 1 and 2)
  • December was the least active month in Q4 2022 for M&A+I events with no known event during the month. (Charts 1 and 2)
  • The investment pulse rate for the three months of Q4 2022 is significantly lower than the investment pulse rate in Q4 2021. (Chart 2)
  • The Q4 2022 investment pulse rate (two) appears to be the lowest Q4 investment pulse rate at least since 2015. (Chart 2)
