SEG’s Kris Beible highlights some key takeaways from our 2020 Annual Software Industry Report.
Software industry public stock market and M&A valuations reached record peaks yet again in 2019. This was led by investor and buyer interest in publicly traded SaaS companies (8.2x EV/Revenue) and SaaS M&A targets (4.9x EV/Revenue). M&A deal activity also reached record levels in 2019, as SaaS M&A volume grew 27% during the year.
