Axial Radar: Targeting Deals with Nontraditional Data

Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!

The MSP (managed service provider) market is massive… and growing. According to some estimates, expenditure on managed IT services alone is expected to increase 8% to $1.28T in 2022. These compelling, and fairly consistent growth trends, have inspired countless entrepreneurs to dip their toes in the MSP waters.

The private equity community (unsurprisingly) has also paid close attention to the growth of the MSP space. The problem for those investors, however, is identifying which individual companies are the right ones to invest in. In this week’s featured Industry Trends article (bottom of the newsletter 👇), we take a look at an innovative indexing system that ranks MSP businesses based on nontraditional data, such as changes in company headcount, website traffic growth, and company growth intent.

Our featured buy-side members this week include a healthcare staffing corporation, a global PE firm headquartered in Chicago, and a micro-cap focused private investment firm. On the sell-side we’ll introduce you to a 40 year old investment bank who has worked with the likes of BMW and Burger King, and an M&A advisory firm focused on the Southwest and other Western states.
