Three pieces of analysis by Bloomberg Law experts accompany the 2022 version of the list. An article examines the continued growth of cybersecurity companies, finding that the growth of these companies in 2020 was much more than a pandemic-driven pivot to remote working. As workers returned to the office in 2021, Silicon Valley cybersecurity companies managed to grow even faster.
Another analysis examines M&A and investment activity in Silicon Valley, finding that the number of M&A and investment deals involving companies ranked on the 2022 Fenwick – Bloomberg Law SV 150 list has still increased from the record year of 2020. However, recent market turmoil could potentially prevent SV 150 companies from sustaining the same level of performance and business activity for the remainder of 2022.
A third analysis examines the 17 companies that entered the Fenwick – Bloomberg Law SV 150 list for the first time in 2022 and their investment and M&A activities. Although the 12 companies that went public in 2021 have had higher levels of overall investment and M&A activity since their inception, investment financing has played a key role in all newcomers’ ability to expand, go public, and appear on the SV 150 list for the first time.
