24 January 2022 - GP Bullhound today publishes qualitative insights into broader Software trends and public and private valuations across the transaction spectrum, and interviews with today’s leaders transforming the sector.

Jonathan Cantwell and Matt Stamp, Partners at GP Bullhound, said: “Q4 2021 saw global M&A and private placement activity break records in the software sector, with buyouts reaching historic levels and private placements following a similar trajectory. The coming year holds a lot of promise for Web3-related projects, with industry leaders launching initiatives and consistent VC interest in SaaS. Software platforms come to alleviate the pains of supply chain shortages, as these challenge companies well into 2022. The entire SaaS community is watching the public markets as SaaS valuations are currently volatile, but business fundaments, growth, retention and other unit economics remain as strong as ever.”
