When we looked at the fastest growing SaaS companies in our study (those with a CAGR of over 50%) we found an average Quick Ratio of 3.9.
These SaaS companies averaged $250k in MRR and were only losing around 3.2% of that revenue each month to churn. They are, in other words, exactly the type of SaaS startup that Mamoon looks for when deciding where to invest.
And, as their high Quick Ratio implies, they have a great chance to continue growing quickly and healthfully, and eventually become one of those fabled SaaS companies with a run rate of more than $10 million.
However, once we started digging deeper, the story became a little more complicated (and more interesting).
More SaaS + Software Stats
Because of the losses in the early days, which get bigger the more successful the company is at acquiring customers, it is much harder for management and investors to figure out whether a SaaS business is financially viable.
If your Net Revenue Churn is high (above 2% per month) it is an indicator that there is something wrong in your business; which may have a dramatically negative effect on your company’s growth. Source: Mckinsey
