July 10, 2017 | Israeli high-tech exits in the first half of 2017 reached a five-year low, both in terms of deal number and in total amount. In 57 deals worth a total of $1.95 billion, the average exit deal for 2017 so far is $34 million, compared to 2016’s exit average of $87 million. A likely explanation is the taxation and regulatory changes in the US and China, which alter the amount businesses can spend outside of the country.
