Private equity money played a larger role in software acquisitions during the first half of 2013, highlighted by the biggest deal of the year so far to take BMC private, according to software M&A analysis from Berkery Noyes.

In its first half of 2013 mergers and acquisitions analysis, Berkery Noyes counted 727 total software market deals, down 19 from the second half in 2012, but at the same aggregate value, $29.6 billion. It’s the lowest number of deals for a six-month period in the last three years, with a high water mark of 812 in the first half of last year. Deal value is also down from the recent top combined total of $42.1 billion, reached during the second half of 2011.
