Over the past year, we’ve watched it quickly evolve into a hub of more than 1200 buy-side companies connecting with more than 850 sell-side companies in over 36 countries. Each one keeps a detailed profile up to date to leverage our proprietary software-based M&A algorithms to connect with their ideal match. Here are some of the highlights, and more details are displayed visually in the infographic below.

  • Strong buy-side demand from non-tech companies, 43% of buyers are outside of the tech sector.
  • 168 of buy-side companies are large publicly traded corporations.
  • The average active sell-side company gets introduced to three new buyers each month.
  • In total, there is more than $305,000,000 worth of aggregate revenue being generated annually by sell-side companies in Exitround.
