A Seven-Year Run: How SaaS Founders Prepare For Exit
For the last seven years, the SaaS market has grown—18% annually—while 99% of organizations are using at least one cloud solution to drive demand.
So today might be the time for SaaS founders to cash out.
But wait a minute.
Is your financial house in order? Does your company story illicit more offers—or questions?
In the world of SaaS, there are several key performance indicators. And you must know how your company stacks up against those numbers before you try to exit.
What’s the gross margin for an average SaaS company? What’s a good churn rate? In terms of private valuations, what’s the multiple?
The market would like to know.
That’s why CFO Magazine asked us for our expertise. So did the Exit Planning Exchange.
