  8. 8. 8 Q1 2014 Software Industry Financial Report Copyright © 2014 by Software Equity Group, LLC All Rights Reserved GLOBAL GDP Sources: Worldbank, The Economist and PIMCO • The latest IMF forecast paints a picture of a steadily improving, but tentative, global economy. • The IMF’s most recent forecast predicted GDP would grow 3.6% in 2014, a modest improvement over 2013’s 3.0% growth rate. In 2015, global GDP is expected to improve further, growing to 3.9%. • According to the IMF, median GDP growth in developed nations is expected to reach 2.3% in 2014, an improvement of 1.0% over 2013. Key growth drivers include more government spending and highly favorable monetary policies. In emerging markets, GDP growth is expected to advance from 4.7% in 2013, to 5.0% in 2014, and 5.3% in 2015. • The IMF acknowledged its forecasts could be imperiled by recent geopolitical events and a growing risk of deflation, particularly in advanced economies.

  9. 9. 9 Q1 2014 Software Industry Financial Report Copyright © 2014 by Software Equity Group, LLC All Rights Reserved U.S. GDP AND UNEMPLOYMENT • According to February’s Federal Reserve survey of 45 economists, GDP growth in 1Q14 is forecast to be 2.0%. For the year, expectations are the U.S. economy will grow 2.8%, boosted by much stronger growth in the second, third, and fourth quarters. • Over 40% of the economists surveyed by the Fed predicted the U.S. economy will grow 3.0% or greater. Only three months earlier, only 30% of economists were that optimistic. • The Labor Department reported the unemployment rate at the end of 1Q14 was 6.7%, unchanged from 4Q13. The unemployment rate remains at its lowest levels since 2008. The labor participation rate showed modest improvement, edging up slightly to 63.2% in March after reaching a 35 year low in December 2013. -0.7% 1.5% -2.7% -5.4% -6.4% -0.7% 2.2% 5.0% 3.7% 1.7% 2.6% 3.1% 0.4% 2.5% 1.3% 4.1% 2.0% 1.3% 3.1% 0.4% 2.5% 1.8% 4.1% 2.6% 2.0% -8% -6% -4% -2% 0% 2% 4% 6% 8% 10% 1Q08 1Q09 1Q10 1Q11 1Q12 1Q13 1Q14 GDP % Growth Unemployment Rate

IT Spending by Category from Forrester. • On average, analysts were more bullish in their forecasts for Global IT spending in 2014, predicting IT budget increases will more than double each of the prior two years. • The average global IT spending increase, as forecast by the several analysts we track, is 4.8% in 2014. That’s a noteworthy increase from their average estimate of 4.0% made at the end of 2013. • Analysts who raised their earlier forecasts, cited an improving economy and growing demand for mobility, cloud computing solutions and infrastructure. IDC, however, cut its forecast slightly, from 5.0% to 4.6%, citing spending slowdowns in emerging markets and deceleration in the massive growth of smartphones and tablets. • Forrester forecasts software will account for 26% of all tech spending, leading all other categories. According to Forrester, “Software’s leading position is not a surprise, because it is the focal point for tech innovation today, whether that innovation takes the form of cloud computing and adoption of SaaS, PaaS, smart computing and big data, real-time predictive analytics and smart process apps, or mobile computing and mobile apps and enterprise app stores.” Global IT Spending by CategoryGlobal IT Spending (% YoY Change) 9.0% 6.0% -10.0% 8.0% 6.0% 2.0% 2.0% 4.8% 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 (F)

The increase marks the seventeenth consecutive quarter of YoY growth, and the thirteenth consecutive quarter of double digit growth. • The Q4 total for E-Commerce spending accounted for 13% of all discretionary retail dollars spent. • Mobile commerce accounted for $6.6B, or 10.5% of the 2013 E-Commerce total, according to comScore. In addition, YoY growth in mobile commerce grew 23% in 2013. • Internet ad revenues surged in 4Q13 (the latest data available) to $12.1 billion, up 17% YoY. For the year, 2013 ad revenues soared to $42.8 billion, a landmark high, and the first time Internet advertising surpassed broadcast television in total ad spend. • According to eMarketer, mobile ad spending was $18.0 billion in 2013, with Facebook and Google grabbing the majority of mobile ad market growth. Facebook’s advance was especially noteworthy. In 2012, the company accounted for just 5.4% of global ad spending, but its share rocketed to 17.5% in 2013. -10% -5% 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% $0 $2 $4 $6 $8 $10 $12 $14 YoYChange DigitalAdvertisingRevenue($B) Digital Advertising Spend ($B) YoY Percent Change -5% 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% $0 $10 $20 $30 $40 $50 $60 $70 YoYChange E-CommerceSpending($B) E-Commerce Spend ($B) YoY Percent Change
  12. 12. 12 Q1 2014 Software Industry Financial Report Copyright © 2014 by Software Equity Group, LLC All Rights Reserved STOCK MARKET PERFORMANCE • After a five year run up that included stellar returns in 2013, the bull market is showing signs of fatigue. After a very slow start in January, 1Q14 stock market performance across all exchanges and indices was choppy for the remainder of the quarter. • Q1’s bumpy ride for investors was largely attributable to the Fed’s announced plans for quantitative easing, skyrocketing market multiples, and geopolitical unrest, particularly in Ukraine. • The S&P posted the best return of the three major stock indices in 1Q14, finishing up 1.3%. The Nasdaq finished close behind, up 0.5%. Surprisingly, in an environment where investors flocked to value stocks, the DOW performed the worst of the three major U.S. stock market indices, closing 1Q14 down 0.72%. • The most dramatic swing in median stock returns in the first quarter was exhibited in the SEG SaaS Index. In early March, the index peaked with a 9.2% return, only to plunge dramatically the rest of the month, closing 1Q14 down 4.6%. In addition to macro economic concerns, many expressed concerns that SaaS valuations had become too rich. More on the impact to median EV/Revenue multiples later in the report. • The SEG Software Index, consisting largely of large, mature, and profitable companies held its own in a tough stock market environment, finishing the quarter flat.

  15. 15. 15 Q1 2014 Software Industry Financial Report Copyright © 2014 by Software Equity Group, LLC All Rights Reserved THE SEG SOFTWARE INDEX: FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE • On a quarterly basis, median TTM revenue growth in 1Q14 declined for the sixth consecutive quarter, to 8.7%. • Despite the tepid growth rate, the median TTM revenue of the SEG Software Index reached $509M, the highest in history, and the highest among our three tracking indices. • More than half of public on-premise software companies reported TTM revenue growth rates of 10% or below in 1Q14. • Of the 15% of on-premise software providers with TTM revenue growth rates of 30% or more, most were focused on three of the hottest product categories, mobility (NQ Mobile – 114%), security (Palo Alto Networks – 49.2%), and Big Data (Splunk – 52.1%). • Forecasts for moderately increased IT spending portend well for these on premise providers. We expect median TTM revenue growth to steadily, albeit modestly, improve for the balance of 2014.

  16. 16. 16 Q1 2014 Software Industry Financial Report Copyright © 2014 by Software Equity Group, LLC All Rights Reserved TTM EBITDA Margin Distribution – 1Q14Median EBITDA Margin Performance - Quarterly • The median EBITDA margin of public on-premise software companies remained relatively steady over the past five quarters, closing 1Q14 at 18.5%. • Only 5% of on-premise software companies achieved EBITDA margins of 40%+. • Check Point Software, a security provider, led the pack with an EBITDA margin of 55.4%. Check Point’s extraordinary profitability can be attributed to a strong, well-performing channel that reduces Check Point’s cost of sales. Curiously, for a company in the rapidly evolving security space, Check Point also spends much less on R&D (8% of total revenue) vs. their industry peers (15% of total revenue). • We anticipate EBITDA margins will experience modest decline in 2014, as on-premise providers increase spending on sales and marketing and invest more in R&D to update legacy products and expand their SaaS offerings.

On-premise software providers achieving 40%+ revenue growth rates boasted a median 10.9x EV/Revenue multiple, 240% higher than the index median. • Members of Q1’s 40%+ growth club mostly came from the highest growth sectors of the software ecosystem – business intelligence and security. Select companies included: Tableau Software (82.0% TTM Revenue Growth, 19.8x EV/Revenue); Palo Alto Networks (49.2%, 9.6x); and Splunk (52.1%, 24.9x). • In a departure from the past several years, the market multiples of on-premise software providers in 1Q14 correlated poorly with their profitability. • In 1Q14, on-premise software companies with no profits achieved a median EV/Revenue multiple of 3.6x, higher than their peers with EBITDA margins of break even to 40%. • Investors in 1Q14 did take special note of on-premise providers with EBITDA margins greater than 40%, conferring a median EV/Revenue multiple of 7.7x, or 140% higher than the index median. Select companies included: Verisk (46.1% EBITDA margin, 7.7x EV/Revenue multiple); Ansys (46.8%, 7.4x); Checkpoint Software (55.4%, 8.5x); and Solar Winds (41.7%, 9.1x).

  24. 24. 24 Q1 2014 Software Industry Financial Report Copyright © 2014 by Software Equity Group, LLC All Rights Reserved • The median TTM revenue growth rate for Public SaaS companies in 1Q14 was 28.2%, down from 33.0% in 1Q13. We expect improvement in 2014, thanks to accelerating enterprise adoption of SaaS solutions, suites and platforms, and increased adoption of SaaS among the SMB segment. • The median TTM revenue of public SaaS companies was $153.3M in 1Q14, a significant increase from just four years ago, when the median was $114.6M. Despite their increased size, TTM revenue growth rates remained in the mid-twenties or higher. • From the standpoint of size, Salesforce continued to dominate the SaaS Sector 1Q14 with TTM revenue of $4.1B, nearly 7x greater than the next largest Public SaaS company. However, a good number of public SaaS Companies reached critical mass (>$350 million) from a revenue standpoint in 1Q14, a feat made more difficult by a revenue model that typically requires deferring a large percentage of the revenue booking. These $350M+ SaaS providers can now be counted among a wide variety of product categories and industry sectors. Examples include Concur (expense management product category, $586M TTM revenue); Athenahealth (healthcare, $595M); DealerTrack (automotive, $482M); Workday (HCM/Financial, $469M); NetSuite (ERP, $415M); Service-Now (IT automation, $425M); and RealPage (real estate, $377M). • Medians alone do not capture the standout performances of the most successful SaaS companies. Nearly one in five public SaaS companies grew TTM revenue growth by 50% or more. As yet further testament to the widespread adoption of SaaS, these outperformers come from a variety of categories including HCM, Security, Marketing, and Construction. Select companies include: Workday (71.4%); FireEye (94.0%); Marketo (64.0%); Cornerstone OnDemand (57.0%); and Textura (70.1%).

  25. 25. 25 Q1 2014 Software Industry Financial Report Copyright © 2014 by Software Equity Group, LLC All Rights Reserved • After peaking in 2010, the median EBITDA margin of public SaaS companies has steadily declined, closing 1Q14 at -1.5%. • Over half (54%) of public SaaS companies are unprofitable, and roughly nine out of ten have EBITDA margins below the 20% median of their on-premise software peers. • And for the time being, that’s just what investors expect if the strong correlation between their EV/Revenue multiples and TTM revenue growth rates (see slide 26) is any indication. • Investors should be circumspect about the GAAP P&L statements of many public SaaS companies which seem to imply they’re suffering significant losses and hemorrhaging cash. In truth, many are not only cash flow positive, but flush with revenue from prepaid subscription fees. But since GAAP requires deferred recognition of most of this revenue, many SaaS providers reported negative operating margins. As example, in its most recent earnings report, Workday reported $56M in net income, yet generated $35M of cash from operations.

Although the 48% YoY multiple increase was the highest on record, we expect the decline in the SaaS median TTM revenue growth rate portends a correction to more rational market multiples later this year. • Public SaaS companies continued to trade at a significant premiums to their on-premise peers (8.0x vs. 3.2x). While public SaaS companies have historically enjoyed trading multiples twice that of their on-premise peers, 1Q14’s differential was exceptional. • A premium multiple can be largely justified by comparing the relative lifetime value of a SaaS customer vs. an on-premise licensee. A SaaS company’s strong customer retention and gross margins will garner significantly greater cash over time from its average customer than will its on- premise counterpart. On the expense side of the equation, the jury is still out as to whether SaaS companies can achieve levels of profitability on par with their on-premise counterparts, once SaaS demand tapers and current levels of sales & marketing spending become unsustainable. • In the meantime, investors are placing their bets on the next wave of SaaS category leaders who are positioned to displace incumbent on-premise providers across multiple product categories - just as Salesforce did to Siebel in the CRM category. A whopping 49% of the companies in the SEG SaaS Index achieved a median EV/Revenue multiple of 9x or higher in 1Q14.

Public SaaS companies that grew TTM revenue in excess of 50% were rewarded with an eye-popping median EV/Revenue multiple of 19.1x in 1Q14. • Conversely, there was an inverse correlation between EBITDA margins and median EV/Revenue multiples. Unprofitable public SaaS companies boasted a rather remarkable median EV/Revenue multiple of 9.6x in 1Q14, while those with EBITDA margins above 30% had a far more modest median market multiple in 1Q14 of 4.3x EV/Revenue.

Many investors have apparently taken careful note. • 1Q14 only served to further reinforce this reality, 35% of companies closed the quarter with an EV/Revenue multiple of 2.0x or less, while 28% closed the quarter with a market multiple of 7.0x EV/Revenue or higher. • Among the Internet companies boosting the highest EV/Revenue market multiples were a large number of relatively recent IPO’s that are capturing a significant share of online advertising dollars.

Among those growing 40%+ were: Trulia (93.3%); Zillow (69.5%); Yelp (67.7%); LinkedIn (65.6%). • Unlike the SEG SaaS Index, where TTM EBITDA margins were inversely related to median EV/Revenue multiples, investors in public Internet companies kept a keen eye on margins, and rewarded more profitable performers with significantly higher market multiples. • Public Internet companies with EBITDA margins above 40% posted a median EV/Revenue multiple of 6.8x in 1Q14, 113% higher than the overall Index median. By comparison, public SaaS companies with EBITDA margins above 30% (not enough companies with 40%+) posted a median EV/Revenue multiple of 4.5x, 44% below the SaaS median market valuation. • Investors have clearly taken into consideration, when valuing Internet vs SaaS stocks, such factors as sustainability of the customer relationship, and the associated recurring revenue, and the nature and extent of switching costs. By those measures the long term promise of SaaS seems to far out weight the attractiveness of many public Internet companies. • With few exceptions, many of the most profitable public Internet companies also reported stellar TTM revenue growth. Among them were SouFun Holdings (43.2% revenue growth, 53.6% EBITDA margin), Facebook (48.2% revenue growth, 47.5% EBITDA margin), Baidu.com (40.7% revenue growth, 45.0% EBITDA margin), and Mail.ru Group (32.2% revenue growth, 44.3% EBITDA margin).

Facebook and LinkedIn led the ascent, after proving social networking could be extremely profitable. • The success social media Internet providers have had monetizing their services, largely through advertising, is taking share away from many in the Ad Tech & Lead Generation space, with marketers clearly attracted to the scalability and ROI of advertising in Facebook and LinkedIn. As a result of these shifting advertising budgets, the median TTM revenue growth of the Ad Tech & Lead Generation product category plunged 22.2% YoY in 1Q14. • Companies within the Gaming product category continue to be very profitable. At the close of 1Q14, the Gaming product category closed with a median EBITDA margin of 32.9%, 3x higher than the median of public Internet companies. However, the category continues to be extremely hits driven leading to low visibility of future performance, which keeps trading multiples somewhat muted. • Despite poor financial performance, the Content & Media product category median EV/Revenue spiked 128% YoY to 3.5x in 1Q14.

The resurgence in the category’s quarterly deal volume is largely attributable to strong customer demand for HR big data and HR analytics, as well as mobile workforce and social recruiting solutions. • Messaging, Conferencing & Communications and Systems Management product categories also exhibited strength in 1Q14, with each accounting for 10.7% of total quarterly deal volume. Both categories benefited from rapidly ramping enterprise adoption of SaaS deployed solutions, which is placing increasing pressure on large, on- premise legacy vendors to catch up.

  56. 56. 56 Q1 2014 Software Industry Financial Report Copyright © 2014 by Software Equity Group, LLC All Rights Reserved • Internet M&A deal volume remained highly volatile, in large part due to shifting marketing strategies, evolving business models, and constant changes in the competitive landscape. • In early 2012, a large number of Internet targets exited amidst the hype of the pending Facebook IPO (5/2012), creating a spike in M&A volume. After the Facebook IPO debacle, Internet investors and buyers alike became more cautious and circumspect, and M&A volume declined markedly, plunging to 185 transactions in 1Q13, down from 273 transactions in 2Q12. • There were 195 Internet M&A transactions in the first quarter, a 23% decline from 4Q13’s 256 deals. We believe the retreat signals a return to more typical quarterly deal activity in the Internet sector, following three consecutive quarters of frothy deal activity. A similar normalization was witnessed in 1Q13. • The median EV/Revenue exit multiple for Internet sellers in 1Q14 was 1.8x, virtually unchanged from the prior four quarters.

The first quarter’s tally was down sharply from 4Q13’s 94 ad-tech transactions, but in line with quarterly transaction volume during the first half of 2013. We do not anticipate a resurgence in Ad-tech and Lead gen deal activity for the remainder of the year. • Internet Infrastructure and Internet Commerce transaction activity declined significantly in 1Q14 from the prior quarter. Here too, the category’s quarterly deal volume represented a retreat to normalcy following high deal volumes in recent quarters. • Content and Media were the only Internet categories to post increases in deal activity over the prior quarter.
