Google’s Acquisition of AppSheet

Google's Acquisition of AppSheet

Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP advised Seattle-based AppSheet, a no-code enterprise app development platform, on its acquisition by Google.

Google announced that it is buying AppSheet, an eight-year-old no-code mobile-application-building platform. The company had raised more than $17 million on a $60 million valuation, according to PitchBook data. The companies did not share the purchase price.

The acquisition will enable AppSheet to expand its platform and market reach as part of the Google Cloud team, while Google gets a simple way for companies to build mobile apps without having to write a line of code. Financial terms were not disclosed.

It is integrated with Google Cloud already integrating with Google Sheets and Google Forms, but also works with other tools, including AWS DynamoDB, Salesforce, Office 365, Box and others. Google says it will continue to support these other platforms, even after the deal closes.

he Orrick team was led by Mark Seneca (Picture), Blake Ilstrup and Laura Bloxham and included Christina Catzoela, Sara Chehrehsa, Max Hyatt, Steve Malvey, Daniel Yost, Mike Yang, Katherine Hogan,
