17 April 2020 - GP Bullhound today publishes its latest market report on the Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) space, examining the public company landscape, M&A, private placement and IPO trends in Q1 2020, including go-to-market strategies, growth trajectories, unit economics, strategic consolidator and investor demand, and market valuation dynamics compared to historical valuations for SaaS companies.

“Q1 2020 will forever be defined by the health and economic challenges stemming from COVID-19. In our report, we discuss our perspectives on related trends and predictions for the near-term: recurring and profitable growth to remain a huge focus, and serving mobile and distributed workforces being critically important for the economy and business operations. Unique and thriving SaaS companies in core sub-sectors will likely command pre-COVID-19 valuations from consolidators looking for strategic acquisitions and financial sponsors with related theses. Moreover, public SaaS companies continue to trade highly: 9.9x LTM revenue and 8.4x NTM revenue on average,” said Jonathan Cantwell, Partner at GP Bullhound.
