Highlights from this report include:

  • Record M&A activity in 2018 with 1,867 deals totaling nearly $200 billion
  • IPO activity was also quite strong with seven deals in Q4 2018
  • Private M&A targets were valued at a median revenue multiple of 5.0x in 2018, up significantly from 4.1x in 2017
  • Market volatility in Q4 2018 led to a median stock price decline of 16.4% for the SaaS & Cloud 160 public company universe
  • M&A activity remains strong with no immediate signs of a reduction in buyer appetite
  • There is risk that a market correction in the next 12-24 months would put downward pressure on M&A activity levels and valuations
