28 April 2021 - GP Bullhound today publishes qualitative insights into broader Marketplaces trends and public and private valuations across the transaction spectrum, and interviews with today’s leaders transforming the sector.

Alessandro Casartelli, Executive Director at GP Bullhound, said: “In Q1, we saw a slight decrease in valuations across all verticals in the Marketplaces sector, after a very strong performance in H2 2020. In line with Q4 2020, marketplaces companies continue to get strong traction in terms of private placements and M&A. Q1 2021 has been the strongest quarter so far in terms of IPO activity with landmark listings, but also with smaller companies that are choosing the public market route. We anticipate a very busy year for the IPO markets.”
