We define this category as private companies that use software to improve efficiency across the supply chain and logistics ecosystems, excluding vertical-specific (e.g. grocery delivery) on- demand companies. 10 SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS ANNUAL FINANCING 2012 2016 YTD (10/19/16) QUARTERLY DEAL HITS TRIPLE DIGITS In Q3'16, deals reached 100, the highest quarterly deal count on record and roughly 8x the quarterly activity seen in the beginning of 2012. Two of the last three quarters have reached over $1B in funding, fueled by Asian mega- rounds. 11 SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS QUARTERLY FINANCING Q1'12 Q3'16 EARLY-STAGE DEAL SHARE STRONG After spiking in 2013, early-stage (seed to Series A) investments have consistently accounted for over 60% of all deals in the space. Meanwhile, corporate minority stakes and convertible notes are driving the sizeable share of "Other" deals. 12 SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS: DEAL SHARE BY STAGE 2012 2016 YTD (10/19/16) PE ROUNDS DRIVING DOLLAR SHARE Dollar share has tilted towards towards late- stage rounds (Series D and E+). The Series E+ share in particular reflects large private equity investments, such as the Chinese firm Best Logistics' $760M round in September. 13 SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS: DOLLAR SHARE BY STAGE 2012 2016 YTD (10/19/16) 2015 2016 YTD (10/19/16) MEGA-ROUNDS PROLIFERATING IN ASIA 14 $1.5B $760M $550M $300M $134M CHINA CHINA INDONESIA CHINA INDIA DIVERSE SOFTWARE & HARDWARE STARTUP LANDSCAPE Many well-capitalized companies are concentrating on e- commerce logistics enablement or on- demand delivery services. A host of startups are also developing tech- driven marketplaces for international freight forwarding as well as trucking. 15 THE SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS TECH MARKET MAP MOST ACTIVE SMART MONEY VCS A variety of top venture capital firms have begun ramping up their bets in SCM and logistics. Among the most active smart money VCs are KPCB and NEA, each having invested in a half- dozen startups or more. 16 For our full list of 24 smart money investors, please see this post.

Companies are targeting trucks' highway-centric routes first, with fenced automation and platooning concepts. 31 LUCRATIVE SPACE WILL CONTINUE TO DRAW ENTRANTS Uber quietly launched a freight portal in late September, signaling a push into long-haul trucking that could combine its efforts in automation, mapping, and carrier/shipper (driver/passenger) matching. 32 EXITS & ROAD AHEAD EXIT ACTIVITY, RECENT DEALS, AND NEWS 33 EXIT TRENDS ALSO ON UPSWING 34 33 39 39 45 42 2 3 2 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 YTD (10/26/16) SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS EXITS 2012 - 2016 YTD (10/26/16) M&A IPO SUPPLY CHAIN & LOGISTICS EXIT HISTORY 2012 2016 YTD (10/26/16) Supply chain & logistics exits have mostly involved acquisitions with a smattering of mid- size IPOs.
