Cheval Capital Celebrates Expansion and 400th Transaction!
We are excited to announce that Cheval Capital lately celebrated their 400th transaction! Ever since the company started a business in the late 1990’s the leaders have helped businesses in the cloud hosting, and IAAS businesses navigate the though tricky mergers and acquisitions, financings and corporate fund.
The 400-transaction benchmark also marked the 25th closed transactions in 2017! The company has completed many transactions in the last few months in many companies including Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, China, Israel, the US and Canada.
The great industry expertise and the extensive network has facilitated in ensuring that clients get maximum value in the aspects of their business regardless of location.
According to their leaders, The company has achieved growth even as providers struggled with organic growth and turned to acquisitions instead. This acquisition demand supported prices and resulted in an active transaction market.
As the year begins, here are a few highlights regarding a hosting company, cloud, and related small business markets.
SMB hosting/cloud business is a market of mass-market-products: While this isn’t new, it is intriguing to many that such a large proportion of the SMB suppliers in the hosting/cloud space are companies offering a limited set of products/services on a mass-market. This focus on a restricted product/service set is terrific for several reasons, but it can also create issues, especially when market expansion slows because of either maturation or competition from substitutes.
What occurs when growth slows? As market growth has slowed down in many business segments, the limited product/service set suppliers in those sections have witnessed slow growth along with it. Providers who were growing more slowly than the market have had trouble replacing normal attrition, and some have started to shrink.
Alternatives: Service suppliers in such slow development sections seem to be chasing at least one of many avenues;.
o Utilizing sales and marketing to take customers from competitors.
o Expanding the range of products/services which are either closely related or possess related customer bases.
o Abandoning customer development as a target and running the company to maximize the money flow from these clients (possibly for distribution to owners or for growth into unrelated companies).
o Making use of M&A to acquire customers or exit the business enterprise.
It appears that larger providers pursue several of these options simultaneously. The little to midsize providers usually tend to concentrate on one or two.
While there will be a couple of providers that can take away customers from others and grow but this might not be feasible unless they provide new, exceptional products or solutions. So, such kind of suppliers may opt to diversify into a wider package of Products/services or use M&A to acquire clients or exit.
