We are pleased to present Cascadia’s 2023 Infrastructure Software Market Update, our second annual publication, that outlines public market, M&A, and capital raising trends across Infrastructure Software.

Overall, 2023 was a lackluster year for the infrastructure software sector as most sub-sectors saw deal volume, dollar volume, and valuation multiples decline year-over-year.

However, downward trends have mostly stabilized and, in some cases, reversed in 2H 2023.

We are optimistic that this positive trend will continue in 2024 due to rising public market multiples, expected interest rate cuts, improved CEO confidence, and $500+ billion of PE dry powder, among other factors.

Welcome to Cascadia’s Agribusiness Quarter in Review newsletter for Q1 2024 where we provide our perspectives on the capital markets, market trends, notable industry transactions, and more across the Production Agriculture, Ag Inputs, AgTech, and AgriFood Processing sub-sectors.

In this quarter’s addition, we cover The Private Equity Opportunity in Agriculture Inputs, Cascadia’s Agribusiness Year in Review, and Other Agribusiness Industry Updates.

If you have any questions, thoughts, or comments, we’d welcome the opportunity to discuss further. Please feel free to email us or subscribe to future Agribusiness Quarter in Reviews.


Topic of the Quarter — The Private Equity Opportunity in Agricultural Inputs

The agricultural input industry plays a vital role in supporting global food production by providing essential resources and materials to farmers. This sector encompasses a wide range of products and services, including seeds, crop nutrition, soil amendments, and crop protection. Growth in this category has primarily been driven by an ever-increasing need for innovative solutions by growers and significant investments in new technologies. The typically mature agricultural input industry has been recently reignited for its next cycle of growth. The time is now for the $70 billion agriculture inputs industry, and Cascadia expects significant platform opportunity and further industry consolidation in the near-term.

Recent technological advancements have significantly influenced the agricultural input industry, transforming traditional farming practices into more efficient and sustainable methods. Traditionally, research and development of new agricultural input technologies have been led by large strategic businesses. But in recent years, mid-sized and more nimble agricultural input businesses have taken the lead in developing and commercializing new technologies, while large strategic agriculture inputs businesses have opted to focus on acquiring and integrating leading agricultural input businesses.

This shift has created a unique window of opportunity for mid-sized agricultural businesses to build market-leading platforms and capture broader agricultural input market growth. These market-leading platforms along with the key principles listed below have created an opportunity for private equity investors to step into the agricultural input market.

The Parallels Between Food Ingredients and Agriculture Inputs:

We see significant parallels between the food ingredient sector and the agriculture input sector. Food ingredients has long been on the private equity radar, and for good reason. Investors looking for high margin, high growth companies, with a sticky customer base and product differentiation are attracted to the food ingredient sectors. Agriculture input companies possess many similar characteristics, making them ripe for additional private equity investment and interest. The agriculture input segment is benefiting from many similar tailwinds:

Proof is in the Numbers:

Many Private Equity Investors are Seeing Success in the Sector:

While private equity investment in the agriculture input sector remains nascent compared to food ingredients, below we spotlight a subset of investors that are experiencing success in the agriculture input category today:


Updates From Our Team — 2023 Year-in-Review

As the Agribusiness Team at Cascadia reflects on the accomplishments and experiences of 2023, we are grateful for the relationships and partnerships that helped define our journey. Over the past twenty-four months, our team has remained the most active Agribusiness team in the country.

In December of 2023, we hosted nearly 200 executives, entrepreneurs, investors and strategics in Orange County, California at our annual Cascadia Connect Food, Bev & Ag conference. At the conference, Cascadia Managing Director, Scott Porter, had the opportunity to interview AgTech veteran, Dave Friedberg, the former founder of The Climate Corporation and current CEO of Ohalo. You can catch the interview by clicking on the photo below.

Looking forward to 2024, we are enthusiastic about building upon our achievements and tackling new challenges for our clients.

Quarter in a Chart: VC Activity in AgTech Returned to Normalized Levels in 2023

After reach all time highs in the zero-interest environment of 2020 – 2022, AgTech deal volumes and values returned to a normalized level in 2023. Investors are now valuing cash flowing technologies with proven ROIs over typical early-stage investments in unproven technologies.

As there is continued interest rate pressure on investor returns, Cascadia suspects we will see similar-to-decreasing activity in the AgTech market in 2024.
