Nordhaven Quarterly Nordic Software M&A report, Q4/2018

28 feb 2019

The fourth quarter of 2018 saw a total of 20 software transactions in the Nordics, in line with both 2016 and 2017. As we now know, the stock market turmoil of December was short-lived, but it did of course affect the year end multiples such that the listed companies were "only" valued at 5.7x revenue. Price expectations continue to be a challenge, but we see indications that the market has increased sophistication in pricing quality. The activity to date in Q1/19, and the interest we observe in the market from both financial and strategic buyers indicate that we will see another record in 2019.
