Our client operates simultaneously in the rapidly growing business analytics software and the venture capital spaces. Management believes that both spaces are poised to continue their rapid growth for the foreseeable future.

Revenue for the Business Analytics and Enterprise Software Publishing industry is expected to increase, rising at an annualized rate of 5.1% to $106.1 billion in 2025. Historical strong revenue growth has been driven by several underlying demand conditions, such as rising corporate profit levels and new market opportunities to expand software offerings on to mobile and cloud platforms.

Over the five years to 2025, revenue for the Private Equity, Hedge Funds and Investment Vehicles industry is forecast to grow an annualized 5.4% to $259.0 increased demand from institutional investors and an upswing in the private equity market.
