22 October 2019 - 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 Q3 2019, 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.

Jonathan Cantwell, Executive Director at GP Bullhound commented: “In Q3 we saw a slight re-pricing of the public SaaS index – down ~15% from prior highs in 2019 – although still trading at healthy and high multiples of >10x trailing revenue. Seven companies went public in the quarter and experienced successful listings – much better than their consumer tech counterparts.  

The private markets have an increasing appetite for SaaS companies and exit opportunities are being driven by both strategic and financial acquirers bringing interest and liquidity to the table.  We continue to be bullish on the sector, devoting significant resources to covering the SaaS universe.”
