24 January 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 Q4 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, Partner at GP Bullhound, comments: “In Q4 2019, we saw the GP Bullhound SaaS Index trade up to 11x trailing revenues and 9x forward revenues. This is a ~25% increase over the historical averages of the last five years; thus, we believe the market continues to be robust and value the best in class SaaS companies highly. Further in the private market, we have seen a shift to operating SaaS companies for profitability in the near-term, while still maintaining strong growth rates and unit economics.”
