We expect to see Enterprise Software M&A deals continue in the fast moving “Social” and Cloud/SaaS arenas as well as a strong move toward analytics and discovery tools and related applications.
Hampleton team members including Axel Brill, Frank Berger, Henrik Jeberg, Miro Parizek, Neal McCleave, and Thomas Berglund have extensive expertise and M&A experience in the enterprise and vertical applications sector involved in transactions such as the sales of among others Albat & Wirsam to Constellation Software, Edvantage to Lumesse, Expert Systems to ReadSoft, Hoffman Datentechnik to Torex Retail and inubit to Robert Bosch. Beyond completing many successful M&A projects, Hampleton’s executives have been enterprise company founders, investors, CEO’s, board members, senior level managers and more at companies such as Acinta, DEC, Kronos, Lumesse, Navision, Nixdorf and SAS Institute.
As enterprise software vendors look to fill gaps in their product and service strategies, SaaS, mobile devices, analytics and Big Data, as well as vertical expertise, are the drivers of current and future M&A growth and a fundamental shift in deal volumes to software and Internet deals based on these technologies.
One of Hampleton’s areas of focus, Enterprise Software, is divided into these five sub-sectors:
- Vertical Applications
- Business Intelligence, Analytics, Business Process Management
- Design, PLM, Project and Portfolio Management
- Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
- Information Management
