In the last decade, VC investors have exited 155 U.S.-headquartered database software companies via a corporate acquisition, buyout or IPO, according to the PitchBook Platform. During that timeframe, the corporate acquisition has easily been the path of choice, accounting for a 91% share. While nearly half (48%) of the past decade’s database software exits have fallen in the “small to medium” range of under $50 million, a considerable portion (39%) of such exits have been between $50 million and $250 million in size. Additionally, nearly one-tenth of the acquisitions, buyouts and IPOs in the industry since mid-2003 have been between $250 million and $500 million.
