netnet Posted June 21, 2016 Share Posted June 21, 2016 An private investor group I'm in had a presentation from a tiny company that was looking for funding to buy a small software company. They were not that impressive, but they did mention Constellation, which got me thinking: Buying small mission critical software companies, (or maybe just buying one or two) seems to be a reasonable thing to do. Obviously the DD has to be good and the first buy has to be really, else one could be out of business, but buying in a small niche and living off of the maintenance contracts seems to be a totally fine way to go. (Now with buying more than one integration could be problematic, etc. Plus the overhead burden for the first few, if it is a roll-up can be problematic, but adding professional management and reducing and consolidating costs could be really powerful.)
