Fall Preview: SEG SaaS Index Overview

By September 29, 2022Article

This week we’re keeping it short and snappy with SEG’s SaaS Index Overview, released August 2022.

Public SaaS company valuations continue to hover above July lows, reaching 6.7x EV/Revenue in August compared to July’s 6.0x multiple.

This volatility will continue as the tug of war between fighting inflation and avoiding a recession plays out.

Here are three highlights from the overview:

  • Human capital management continues to lead all other product categories, as the cohort gained 4.4% from July to August after being down 21% YTD in July.
  • Communications and Collaboration posted the lowest YTD price performance, with equities in the category declining 56.7% thus far in 2022. The product category has continued to come back to earth after it experienced exorbitant highs due to the rapid acceleration of remote work experienced during COVID.
  • Qualys (10.7%), PowerSchool (9.3%), and Alteryx (3%) are three of five companies posting positive YTD returns.
