This Site includes information regarding Vista Equity Partners’ past and present portfolio companies. It should not be assumed that investments made in the future will be comparable in quality or performance to the investments described herein. Further, references to Vista Equity Partners’ past and present portfolio companies should not be construed as a recommendation of any particular investment or security.

Any past performance information on the Site, including the Investor Website (as defined below), is not necessarily indicative, or a guarantee, of future results.
The Site may contain forward-looking statements (including those relating to current and future market conditions and trends in respect thereof) that are not historical facts and are based on current expectations, estimates, projections, opinions and/or beliefs of Vista. Such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, and undue reliance should not be placed thereon. In addition, no representation or warranty is made with respect to the reasonableness of any estimates, forecasts, illustrations, prospects or returns, which should be regarded as illustrative only, or that any profits will be realized. Actual events or results or actual performance of the relevant Fund (or any other entity referred to on the Site) may differ materially from those reflected or contemplated in such forward-looking statements.

Assets under management (“AUM”) as of 09/30/20. Vista’s AUM generally represents the net asset value (“NAV”) of assets Vista manages based on US GAAP plus unfunded commitment amounts as of the measurement date. NAV refers to the fair value of the assets of a fund less the liabilities of the fund. NAV and unfunded commitment amounts do not include assets in certain employee contribution vehicles.
Certain recognitions described herein (the “Recognitions”), including but not limited to the PitchBook’s recognition as “Top Saas Investor” in 2011, Berkery Noyes’ recognition as “Most Active Financial Investor in the Software Industry” in 2011, Preqin’s recognition as “Consistent Performer in Private Equity” in 2013, PitchBook’s recognition as “Top SaaS Investor of the Past Decade” in 2018, BuyOuts’ recognition for “Deal of the Year” with the Marketo deal in 2019, were prepared by third parties using data, including but not limited to fund performance data, gathered through surveys, databases and other sources. 2020 PE Wire US Award nominees were chosen by PE Wire based on data provided by Bloomberg. Award winners were then chosen by an open “peer review system” whereby PE Wire readers were invited to elect a “best in class” in a series of categories via online survey, and nominated firms and their affiliates were not excluded from voting for themselves in the election process. 2020 Inc. Award nominees were required to apply for nomination, which included a participation fee.
The Recognitions do not include information on all applicable private equity funds available for investment or all vintages of such private equity funds and therefore are necessarily incomplete. In particular, the Recognitions do not include the results of private equity funds that do not meet the specified investment strategy or other specified criteria, or that were raised prior to or subsequent to the cut-off dates specified in the criteria for such Recognitions. Inclusion of such private equity funds could materially affect the relative positioning of the private equity firms shown in the Recognitions. In addition, the Recognitions make certain assumptions and weightings, and other assumptions or weightings could lead to materially different results. Because the methodologies of the Recognitions are proprietary, it is not possible for a private equity firm to assess the universe of private funds included, including an assessment of whether such funds have investment programs or risk/return profiles similar to that of the funds managed by such firm. Use of other methodologies might lead to a private equity fund or firm being ranked in a materially different position. In addition, any Recognition that represents an aggregate performance of any private equity firm’s funds, including but not limited to the above mentioned Recognitions, is not necessarily indicative of any one investor’s experience. For the foregoing and other reasons, the Recognitions may not be an appropriate measure by which to assess the performance of any private equity fund.

Case Studies Disclosures
15 MM U.S. Public Pensioners: Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, 8/2020, Public Plans Data.
55%+ of Teachers and Education Pensioners; 45% of Public Safety Pensioners: Note: Percentages denote the proportion of U.S. teachers and education pensioners and U.S. public safety pensioners respectively, that Vista’s LPs represent. Pensioners are defined as all participants in a U.S. public pension fund, including both former public employees receiving benefits and current public employees entitled to future benefits. Methodology: Percentages are calculated by pulling data on U.S. public pension plans and their beneficiaries from the Center for Retirement Research website. This dataset tracks the number of beneficiaries per pension fund and classifies them by pensioner type (e.g. Teachers & Education, Public Safety). Pension funds are then mapped to Vista’s list of public pension LPs included in Vista’s Salesforce database. The result is Vista’s number of beneficiaries covered, which is divided by the total number of beneficiaries in each pensioner type to calculate percentages. The numbers highlighted are rounded down to remain conservative.
