| Significant Increase on Exits |
Technology exits totaled $9.9 billion in 2019, double the amount of 2018, and 33% more than in 2017. The Israeli technology industry posted 587 exits over the past decade - companies that were sold or held stock exchange offerings - with a total of $71 billion. If follow-on deals, companies acquired more than once or acquired after holding an offering, are taken into account, the amount rises to $108 billion. It is important to be reminded that this is happening in a country with a population of just over 8 million people, which is the size of 2 districts in Beijing. So when we measure these achievements per capita, the successes of Israeli tech companies are clear.
