Growth continues for the enterprise SaaS sector

Entreprise SaaS Spot On 

What's behind the surge in Nordic SaaS share prices? Oaklins' enterprise SaaS specialist Alpo Luostarinen explains why equity investment in the sector continues to scale new peaks, even in the face of the pandemic.

The software market has transformed dramatically within the past decade, and nowhere more so than in the Nordics, where a large number of high-growth SaaS providers have emerged. This is evident in the M&A market, as well as the region’s initial public offering (IPO) market, where during the past five years there have been over 30 IPOs for SaaS companies.

We examine what makes the SaaS model so resilient, and interview CEOs of two companies that sailed through the COVID-19 storm: eSmiley, the Nordic region’s leading supplier of digital management solutions for professional kitchens; and LeadDesk, an internationalizing software company operating in the cloud-based software market in Europe.

Continuing to focus on the Nordics, we reveal the rationale behind selected transactions and while our clients explain the role Oaklins played in ensuring they got the best deal to take them to the next level. And we leave you with a summary of recent transactions to let our global track record speak for itself.
