We are pleased to release an update to the IT Software Report for Q1 2022. The report provides insight and analysis on stock performance, valuation developments and M&A dynamics within the Software and IT Services sector.
▪ Focused on application software, this publication includes a more detailed view on the universe of application software, segmented into horizontal and vertical application software.
− The horizontal application software segment is divided into two groups in terms of performance: On the one hand, "CRM / Marketing", "ERP" and "SCM / Logistics" have shown moderate to high growth in Q1 2022, while "Tele- /Communications" has suffered heavy losses as shares of Sinch, Synchronoss and Zoom decreased over 30% in Q1 particularly due to the easing of Covid-19 related regulatory measures.
− Among the vertical application software segments, "Healthcare" recorded strong growth, as in the previous quarter, while "Energy / Mining" remained constant. The “Real Estate / Construction” segment recorded a decline of 22%, reflecting Autodesk’s share price losses of more than 20% in the last quarter. Similarly, the "Finance / Insurance" segment recorded a decline of 9%.
▪ Overall, growth and valuation levels of horizontal / vertical application software companies were impacted in Q1 2022 by a rising inflation, rising uncertainties in supply chains and economic outlook, which in part are due to the war in Ukraine and ongoing Corona situation in certain regions.
