1 since 1987 May 2015 INDEPENDENT INVESTMENT BANKING FOR GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY, MEDIA, MARKETING & INFORMATION Tech M&A Update Human Capital Management: Power from the People This month s letter is written by Jeff Becker, Managing Direcr & Co-Head of Technology Banking From time time, in our monthly JEGI TechM&A Update, we highlight a subsecr of the Tech universe that we find particularly interesting and dynamic. This month we are shining the spotlight on the Human Capital Management (HCM) secr, an area we first started tracking in 2002 and have stayed very active in since. Broadly described, this space includes software, services and consulting that help organizations better acquire, manage and optimize their own people resources help their organizations operate more effectively. Solutions in this area can cover the gamut, from sourcing/recruiting employee candidates, training and measuring their performance post-hire, the payroll/ compensation/benefits functions and administration. In addition, there are many other related areas, such as assessments, contingent workforce management, outplacement management and analytics, found across the whole spectrum of HCM. While much of our focus has hisrically been around software solutions for this market, increasingly we are finding lots of compelling activity in various services areas as well, particularly tech-enabled services. HCM is certainly a big-time market. HCM wasn t always viewed this way. About 10 years ago, when we first started attending the industry s flagship event, the HR Technology Conference, it was a nice, cozy gathering at the Navy Pier in Chicago. You could count on one hand the number of other investment banking, VC and PE professionals in attendance. We liked the fact that we knew something that others didn t that this space was ready explode. And sure enough, it has exploded. If the HR Tech Show is one measurement, then the secr has certainly hit critical mass in the past few years. The event is now held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, a venue so large that just trying meet someone for coffee means a nearly 15 minute trek from the exhibition floor the hotel Starbucks. Over 4,000 people attended in 2014, which included so many bankers, VCs, and PE partners that Brooks Brothers and Tumi should have opened a pop-up sre there. It s been a fascinating transformation watch and be a part of. More than 20 years ago, bankers (and many invesrs) would often ignore HR software companies, because HR wasn t viewed as a strategic part of the enterprise and didn t have the capital budget access required make seven-figure purchases of perpetual license software. But approximately 10 years ago, HR departments became one of the first adopt and benefit from the shift SaaS models (if you think about it, payroll with its service bureau-like business model of paying on a per-head, per-month basis was a candidate ripe for SaaS). Then Oracle bought PeopleSoft and let it languish for a while, allowing the first wave of SaaS Recruiting/Talent Management vendors (Taleo, SuccessFacrs, Kenexa, Cornersne OnDemand, etc.) emerge and become leading best-of-breed vendors. Just as this group started acquire and organically develop their way become broader suites, many of them got acquired by Oracle (Taleo), SAP (SuccessFacrs) and IBM (Kenexa) in , along with some of their learning software brethren (Plateau, Learn.com, OutStart, etc.), as the large global players began view the HCM market as fully ready for prime time. Along with others like Workday and LinkedIn, it may have appeared a couple of years ago that the HCM market was now largely played out and wouldn t be o interesting for start-ups and growth and private equity invesrs. Well, the HCM market may have taken a short moment catch its breath, but it has again returned being interesting and active, and this time in a broader array of areas. Instead of all the activity happening in a concentrated space around talent management, such as during the last boom in HCM, we are now seeing activity across a variety 1
2 of functionality for different parts of the HR organization, as well as across cusmer bases of differing sizes and in many different industry verticals. While the large vendors continue integrate their acquired solutions and sell the end--end suite vision, an increasing number of best-of-breed companies have emerged innovate and push the industry in the future. Invariably, some of these emerging HCM companies will also get acquired when the large vendors find their market opportunities large and ripe enough, but for now, we are enjoying watching many companies grow rapidly and begin achieve critical mass. Here are some of the areas where we have seen sizable market opportunities and interesting companies materialize: HCM for SMB Markets Companies such as Infinisource and Ascentis are figuring out how offer very complete and highly functional, yet right-sized, solutions for specific markets. These vendors provide fully integrated solutions that solve the problems that companies with up 5,000 employees need support the best practices that large enterprise solutions provide, while being easier and more efficient implement and sustain given their cusmers more limited resources. The SMB market had been vastly underserved until recent years. Vertically Focused Solutions The last wave of HCM offerings were largely horizontal in their approach. As in other areas of enterprise software, the next wave for HCM is likely see vendors emerge with solutions for problems particular certain industries. One great example of this is the huge potential market for hourly employees, which is often found in retail or other service industries. Companies like Jobaline and PeopleMatter are among the early leaders in this rapidly growing segment. Recruiting s Next Wave While the traditional ATS (Applicant Tracking System) is a mature market, designed for a handful of power users at enterprises, there is a strong push create solutions that fully utilize mobile and social technologies. These more nimble solutions will truly follow the sourcing/hiring/onboarding workflows that incorporate many users throughout the organization. SmartRecruiter and Jibe are two examples of companies look out for here. NAS Recruitment Innovation is doing what its name says in the recruiting marketing part of the secr. erecruit is an emerging leader in recruiting and back office software for the largest staffing companies in the world. Workforce Analytics This area has been talked about for years and is now ready for prime time. Over the past decade, organizations have implemented core talent management and HRIS systems, and they are now interested in taking the next step and using analytics (HCM s Big Data play) generate actionable intelligence help direct the organization as a whole be more efficient (e.g., What is the profile of our best employees? How do we best train our workforce meet their performance goals? How many people should be hired and where/when?). Some early leaders in this market include Visier and Workforce Insight, while SAP s and IBM s partnership announcement in early May integrate their HR solutions will bring a lot of HCM data IBM s Talent Insights (powered by Watson Analytics), likely driving this segment the forefront even faster. Many Other Areas There are still many other companies exploiting market opportunities throughout the HCM landscape that are worth exploring. Benefits administration and other benefits-related areas are seeing a great deal of activity with next-generation solutions, so keep sizable companies like Businessolver, Thomsons Online Benefits and GuideSpark on your radar screen. Assessments are seeing a resurgence, especially as a part of the analytics trend, where companies like PAN are very active. And on the other end of the HCM continuum, the career transition/offboarding space has become exciting with a company we have previously spotlighted, RiseSmart, providing an innovative tech-enabled service. It is clear that there is currently a great deal happening in the Human Capital Management space, and we believe there will be strong activity in this market for some time. Recently, there has been increased investment and acquisition activity as well. Many growth equity and private equity firms have been active, as we ve seen with Warburg Pincus acquisition of Payscale, Vecr Capital s acquisition of Saba and firms like Accel-KKR and Catalyst Invesrs taking significant stakes in multiple companies in the secr. Strategic acquisitions have become more common, with deals like Infor s acquisition of PeopleAnswers (>5x revenue), NetSuite s acquisition of TribeHR (double digit revenue multiple) and Skillsoft s acquisition of SumTotal, serving as just a few examples. 2
3 All of this innovation and deal activity are key reasons why JEGI is holding the JEGI Human Capital Management Symposium in New York on June 3rd. We look forward great insights coming out of our keynote and panel discussions, as well as presentations from a number of CEOs from high-growth, emerging, innovative companies across the HCM landscape. For additional details, please visit here: If you are interested in attending this exclusive HCM Symposium, please contact Christie Adams Haseln at These are our brief highlights for May. Please stay tuned for the next issue of our Tech M&A Update, and don t hesitate contact us discuss any pics related JEGI s Tech Coverage or your company s M&A strategy.

I am excited by the gigantic potential ahead of us. It s as though Celtra just climbed the first hill and now has the view of the Himalayas.
