Go for a Dream Exit

Your company operates in a fast-growing market. Software development has never been in greater demand than today.

Customized processes remain necessary, but at the same time there is a clear trend towards Software-as-a-Service companies (SaaS) and towards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and low-code platforms. These types of companies want to offer customers structure and often simplicity in their own software development.

This is how you value a SaaS company

  1. To what extent do you, as a software entrepreneur, know how to package your service as a product? The more your software fits into packages or subscriptions, the better.
  2. This is related to: how high is the  recurring revenue? This is very important when valuing technology companies.
  3. How well do you know how to bind your customers? A low churn leads to a higher rating.
  4. Can your product be rolled out internationally – and in which markets? The larger the market that your company can realistically reach, the better.

This is what a potential buyer looks at:

  1. The war for talent is a major challenge for software companies. The services provided by software companies are almost always labor intensive, and for talented employees, switching from one software company to another is a breeze.
  2. Low code software development and PaaS services are here to stay. More and more software service providers offer their customers structured ways to easily develop their own software.
  3. Companies that know how to develop an international product have a larger market.
  4. Recurring revenue is very important to a buyer.
  5. How well does your company know how to package its services as products? Productizing intellectual property (IP) leads to higher scalability - which is attractive to a buyer.
