The increase was felt around the world, but some regions did better than others. central and South Asia including India, Pakistanand Bangladesh, recorded the strongest annual growth at 14.5%. It was followed by Africathe Middle Eastand Eastern Europe all posting annual growth rates between 9 and 10%. North and South America also performing well with annual growth rates of 6.5% and 7.8% respectively. At the bottom was Western Europe (2%) and the rest of Asia (2.7%) which includes Australia, China, Indonesia, South Koreaand Japan.

Carriers around the world are starting to see the benefits, with 17 of the top 20 mobile carriers seeing growth in the first quarter. Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio saw double-digit revenue growth in India while carriers in the United States posted annual growth close to or above 5%, such as Verizon (9.5%), T-Mobile (6.6%) and AT&T (4.8%).

COVID recovery, 5G and IoT were the top three growth drivers in the first quarter of 2022, but other factors at play may affect the market in the future.

Ronan of RenesseOmdia’s Senior Director of Research for Service Provider Markets, said, “Will this success be short-lived? Probably yes. Looking to the second quarter of 2022 and beyond, we expect revenue to continue to grow, albeit at a slower pace than what was seen in the first quarter. “

Strict COVID restrictions in China will have a negative impact on revenues in South East Asia. In Eastern Europethe impact of the Russo-Ukrainian conflict will be felt more in the second quarter and throughout the year as hope for a resolution is still unclear.

“Macro-economic factors such as inflation and the prospect of a global recession will affect consumers’ willingness to spend on mobile services in the future.” adds Renesse.

How India’s leading IT companies Infosys and TCS are fighting churn https://techcomforces.com/how-indias-leading-it-companies-infosys-and-tcs-are-fighting-churn/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 05:14:00 +0000 https://techcomforces.com/how-indias-leading-it-companies-infosys-and-tcs-are-fighting-churn/

Attrition rates have been high across IT companies in recent quarters as demand for tech talent with digital skills has continued to outstrip supply as labor costs rise. With the increase in demand, attracting talent, training and retention have taken on paramount importance.

India’s leading IT companies increased their hiring, with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Infosys hiring record numbers in FY22.

TCS experienced the highest employee additions ever in a quarter. In the fourth quarter, TCS added 35,209 employees on a net basis, the highest net addition ever in a quarter. Membership stood at 592,195, a net addition of 103,546 during the year, another all-time high. Similarly, Infosys added nearly 22,000 employees during the fourth quarter.

“Companies have taken various measures such as offering competitive compensation, improving employee engagement, employee well-being, reskilling and providing better opportunities to acquire and retain talent. Although attrition has remained high, companies are seeing some moderation in attrition on an annualized quarterly basis,” national brokerage and research firm Motilal Oswal said in a note.

With moderating attrition, improving pricing, less reliance on contractors, more recent additions and strong operating leverage, both companies should be able to maintain margins at the future.

“Given the capabilities of TCS and INFO, both companies are well positioned to weather a weakening macroeconomic environment. Margin is expected to remain flat, despite headwinds, due to moderating attrition, a more recent addition and a positive pricing environment,” the brokerage said.

Motilal Oswal remains positive on the IT services sector on reasonable valuations and good double-digit earnings growth (partially helped by a 300-350 bps impact from INR depreciation against USD) during FY23.

In announcing its FY22 fourth quarter results, India’s leading IT company TCS said attrition from its IT departments continued to rise in the January-March 2022 period, reaching 17 .4%. However, the gradual attrition has “moderated”. While IT giant Infosys’ voluntary attrition percentage for LTM – IT Services increased to 27.7% in Q4FY22 from 25.5% in the prior quarter and 10.9% in the prior year quarter.

		Oracle Cloud, License Demand Drives Strongest Organic Growth in Over 10 Years

Growing Oracle Cloud activity and a licensing boom to tie businesses to enterprise technology have given Oracle its strongest organic growth in more than a decade and a quarter of significant fiscal year 2022 compared to expectations.

On Monday, Oracle CEO Safra Catz, in her prepared remarks on Oracle’s fourth quarter fiscal 2022 financial analysts’ conference call, told analysts that Oracle had a strong quarter across the board. domains, with a total turnover up 10% compared to the previous year.

“[Revenue had] the highest organic growth we’ve seen since 2011 and $240 million above the high of my current constant currency forecast,” Catz said. “Earnings were as strong as EPS [earnings per share] was 20 cents above the upper forecast range. What the fourth quarter demonstrates is that our business is accelerating. »

Oracle’s growth is unleashed as companies, especially during the pandemic, have found reasons to make greater use of the company’s technologies to modernize their operations, Catz said.

“These customers then become bigger customers of Oracle,” she said. “Fusion customers buy OCI (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure). OCI customers buy Fusion and NetSuite. Database clients move to Autonomous on OCI. Vertical industry customers choose Fusion. We have real momentum everywhere. Going forward, and despite the macroeconomic environment, we continue to expect our cloud business revenue growth to accelerate significantly in fiscal 2023.

Oracle co-founder, executive chairman and chief technical officer Larry Ellison (pictured) said during his prepared remarks that the company was laying the groundwork to accelerate its cloud revenue growth.

It starts with Oracle’s two most important verticals, healthcare and financial services, Ellison said.

Oracle’s $28 billion acquisition of AWS partner and healthcare technology developer Cerner, which closed this month, gives Oracle the opportunity to build a comprehensive suite of applications for all of the health ecosystem, Ellison said.

Oracle is modernizing Cerner’s clinical systems with features such as a voice user interface and applications such as disease-specific AI models; adding a network of IoT devices to improve diagnostics and patient monitoring; add administrative systems to manage the recruitment, scheduling and compensation of contract workers such as doctors and nurses; simplify inventory control; add RFID tags and cards to cell phones; and automate payment authorization and billing systems, he said.

“We can do all of this and more because we’re building these healthcare applications using the latest and most productive cloud technologies, namely the Oracle Autonomous Database and low-power programming language. Apex code,” he said. “With these tools, security and reliability are built into the technology platform, not the application.”

On the financial services side, Oracle is working with major banks and leading logistics companies to automate B2B commerce directly from Oracle ERP Cloud, Ellison said. For example, he said, a hospital looking to purchase an X-ray machine can enter a purchase requisition into its Oracle ERP Procurement system, which then sends that order directly to the company’s Oracle ERP Order Management system. vendor and automatically generates a loan request from that hospital’s preferred bank, after which the vendor can use their Oracle ERP order management system to check product availability and submit a shipment request.

The entire B2B commerce process is automated in Oracle Cloud, Ellison said.

“B2B commerce automation is another huge opportunity for Oracle,” he said. “We already have over 30,000 ERP Cloud customers, including many of the world’s largest banks and leading logistics companies.”

Asked by an analyst how Oracle cloud and on-premises licensing revenue grew 18% year-over-year in the fiscal fourth quarter, Ellison said that with the exception of Workday , most major application and SaaS companies such as Salesforce.com Oracle database for use in the cloud.

“Some licenses, you know, are typically used on-premises, but a lot of the new licenses we’re selling allow our customers to…run them in the cloud, whether it’s our cloud or other people’s clouds, or in the case of Salesforce in their own cloud,” he said. “So Oracle Database is still the number one database in the world by a significant margin. number one in the cloud when you start counting all the SaaS companies that use the Oracle database.

Asked by another analyst what’s driving Oracle’s licensing growth, Catz said that large companies understand that having an unlimited agreement for a certain period of time gives them significant flexibility.

“Any large database user who doesn’t have an unlimited deal with us really isn’t optimizing their spend because it gives them incredible flexibility,” she said. “They can use onsite for as long as they need. They can migrate to the cloud and get a much lower price in the cloud with BYOL [bring your own license]and they can come and go.

When another analyst asked if Oracle’s cloud ERP business could be affected by an economic downturn, Ellison replied that cloud systems cost less than on-premises systems to operate while providing better insights.

He also said that small businesses continue to actively invest in the cloud, including Oracle’s NetSuite ERP technology for small businesses.

“We got the most revenue we’ve ever gotten from NetSuite in the last quarter, and the highest growth rate we’ve ever gotten from NetSuite in the last quarter,” he said. “[Smaller businesses] accelerate in the recession. Because, we think, the benefits are enormous. And it allows companies to be more competitive. And again, we don’t see this activity slowing down. On the contrary, we see our ERP business, both Fusion and NetSuite, accelerating despite the macroeconomic situation.

For its fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, ended May 31, Oracle reported total revenue of $11.84 billion, up 5% from the company’s reported $11.23 billion. for its fourth quarter of fiscal 2021. That beat analysts’ expectations of $190 million, according to Seeking Alpha.

This included cloud services and license support revenue of $7.62 billion, up 3%; cloud license and on-premise license revenue of $2.54 billion, up 18%; hardware revenue of $856 million, down 3%; and services revenues of $833 million, up 3%.

Broken down another way, Oracle reported cloud revenue, including IaaS and SaaS, of $2.9 billion, up 19%; infrastructure cloud revenue up 36%; Sales of Fusion ERP SAS up 20%; and NetSuite ERP SaaS revenue up 27%.

For the quarter, Oracle reported GAAP net income of $3.19 billion or $1.16 per share, down from net income of $4.03 billion or $1.37 per share. last year. On a non-GAAP basis, Oracle reported net income of $4.24 billion or $1.54 per share, down from $4.52 billion or $1.54 per share. last year. Those non-GAAP earnings beat analysts’ expectations of 16 cents per share, according to Seeking Alpha.

For the full fiscal year 2022, Oracle reported revenue of $42.44 billion, up 5% from $40.48 billion last year. Cloud services and licensing support revenue increased 5% to $30.17 billion, cloud licensing and on-premises licensing revenue increased 9% to $5.88 billion, revenue hardware fell 5% to $3.18 billion and services revenue rose 6% to $3.21 billion.

For the year, Oracle reported GAAP net income of $6.72 billion or $2.41 per share, down significantly from the $13.75 billion or $4.55 per share it reported. reported for fiscal year 2021. On a non-GAAP basis, Oracle reported revenue of $13.66 billion or $4.90 per share, down from $14.13 billion in last year or $4.67 per share.

Looking ahead, Catz said Oracle was optimistic about its business momentum despite increasing macroeconomic uncertainty. Oracle expects its cloud business revenue to grow organically by more than 30% in fiscal 2023. The company also expects double-digit organic growth in its cloud service revenue and license support.

For its first quarter of fiscal 2023, total revenue, including the Cerner acquisition, is expected to grow between 20% and 22% year-over-year, Catz said. First-quarter cloud revenue is expected to grow 25% to 28% excluding Cerner revenue, or between 47% and 50% including Cerner, she said.

5 Ways Voice-Triggered Macros Can Improve Radiologist Workflow https://techcomforces.com/5-ways-voice-triggered-macros-can-improve-radiologist-workflow/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 21:16:44 +0000 https://techcomforces.com/5-ways-voice-triggered-macros-can-improve-radiologist-workflow/

This week at the annual conference of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine, presenters argued for the utility of voice-triggered macros in combating radiologist burnout.

Speakers Shawn Lyo, MD, of SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University and Dan Cohen-Addad, MD, of the University of Pennsylvania discussed how using voice-triggered macros could optimize radiologists’ workflows, save time and increase efficiency.

Voice-triggered macros are spoken voice commands that trigger a subsequent command to perform a specified task. Software that achieves this is easily implemented into workflows and can perform virtually countless tasks.

“You can basically use them for anything you want: faster PACS functions, emails, music playback, etc. said Cohen-Addad.

Regarding the benefits of these macros for radiologists, Lyo cited the ever-increasing mountain of work that radiologists face. While production expectations have increased, the time in which radiologists must follow them has remained the same, the speakers explained. Speaking of time constraints in particular, Lyo shared that a single use of voice macro can save 27 seconds and 24 mouse clicks/key presses; if there are 50 protocols in a team, using the macros could save 22.5 minutes and 1,200 mouse clicks/key presses.

HEIDELBERG expects further profitable growth for financial year 2022/23 despite great uncertainties https://techcomforces.com/heidelberg-expects-further-profitable-growth-for-financial-year-2022-23-despite-great-uncertainties/ Thu, 09 Jun 2022 05:00:00 +0000 https://techcomforces.com/heidelberg-expects-further-profitable-growth-for-financial-year-2022-23-despite-great-uncertainties/
  • Sales are expected to reach around €2.3 billion in fiscal year 2022/23, with a strong backlog of €900 million, mainly due to growth in the company’s core business
  • EBITDA margin of at least 8% and continued improvement in net income after tax
  • Highlights of the 2021/22 financial year: increase in sales of 14% to 2.183 billion euros and in EBITDA margin increases to 7.3%
  • Strengthening balance sheet resilience and reducing net financial debt

HEIDELBERG, Germany , June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (HEIDELBERG) is cautiously optimistic heading into the 2022/23 financial year. The Group’s backlog of approximately €900 million as of March 31, 2022 is the highest in ten years. However, like all production companies, HEIDELBERG is faced with sharp increases in material, energy, logistics and personnel costs which are likely to lead to price adjustments. Thanks also to the substantial efficiency improvements resulting from the package of measures in recent years, HEIDELBERG is nevertheless confident of being able to improve sales from 2.18 billion euros to around 2.3 billion euros in the financial year. 2022/23 and also to increase the EBITDA margin to at least 8 percent.

The Group benefits from growth initiatives focused on the key profitable markets of packaging printing, digital business models and the dynamically growing e-mobility sector. For example, sales of charging stations for electric vehicles (wallboxes) increased by more than 120% to around 50 million euros in the previous financial year and HEIDELBERG expects further double-digit growth for the current year.

“During the past financial year, HEIDELBERG further strengthened its resilience by significantly improving its sales and results. Financially, the Group is in a better position than it has been for some time. In the financial year 2022/ 23 also, we look to benefit from this, successful growth initiatives focused on key markets and our digital business models, as well as our success in e-mobility, which makes us optimistic about our ability to counter the very difficult circumstances, including huge price increases. We will be monitoring the markets very closely so that we can take the necessary countermeasures, but as things stand, we expect further revenue growth to approximately 2.3 billion euros and, mainly due to operational improvements, an increase in the EBITDA margin to at least 8%”, states CEO HEIDELBERGDr. Ludwin Monz.

HEIDELBERG’s realignment pays off

In the financial year 2021/22 (April 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022), HEIDELBERG benefited from the successful realignment of the Group over the previous two years. Sales increased by 14% to €2.183 billion, which met the target of at least €2.1 billion. Significant growth was achieved in commercial printing and packaging, with growing demand for virtually every product and in every region. Customer investment in new equipment has been the main driver in this regard. Incoming orders increased by more than €450 million to €2.454 billion, reflecting this improvement in the investment climate. The backlog reached a level of around 900 million euros (previous year: 636 million euros).

HEIDELBERG has seen the successful development of its electromobility business continues. In the Technology Solutions segment, strong demand for private electric vehicle charging stations (wallboxes) led to an increase in sales from €22 million to around €50 million. Despite major growth investments, the operating margin improved considerably, rising from 0 to 7.8%. With approximately 130,000 units sold, HEIDELBERG is one of the market leaders in Germany.

Thanks to the significant growth in Group sales and improved profitability, EBITDA increased to 160 million euros (previous year: 95 million euros). In addition to operational improvements, the non-recurring effects of asset management – in particular the proceeds from the sale of docufy (around 22 million euros) and a building in the UK (about 26 million euros) – also contributed positively to this figure. Impairments related to economic sanctions against Russia in the fourth quarter had the opposite effect. Adjusted for the non-recurring expenses and income of the previous year, the operational improvement which serves as the basis for the EBITDA is more than 100 million euros. The EBITDA margin based on sales reached a level of 7.3% (previous year: 5.0%). Thanks also to the financial result, which improved from 11 million euros to -30 million euros, the net income after tax went from –43 million euros to 33 million euros.

Improved the quality of the balance sheet and free cash flow by more than 100 million euros at the operational level

Mainly due to the significant reduction in net working capital and proceeds from the sale of assets during the reporting period, the free movement of capital rose from 40 million euros the previous year to 88 million euros. Thanks to the successful repayment of loans, borrowings and a convertible bond, the net financial debt fell sharply again, from 67 million euros to –11 million euros. Leverage decreased from 0.7 to -0.1. HEIDELBERG has also made significant progress with its capital ratio. This figure rose to 11.1%, compared to 5.1% for the previous twelve months.

“Our efforts to improve our cash flow and the quality of our balance sheet are also paying off. Going forward, the focus will remain on delivering positive free cash flow and strengthening our financial position. in order to make HEIDELBERG even more resilient”, adds the company director. CFO, Marcus A. Wassenberg.

Confidence for the 2022/23 financial year despite major global uncertainties

Despite the great global uncertainties due to the conflict in Ukraine and pandemic-related lockdowns in China, the outlook for HEIDELBERG to experience profitable growth again in the 2022/23 financial year is good. Assuming no further decline in demand or worsening supply chain situation, sales are expected to increase to around €2.3 billion (fiscal year 2021/22: €2.183 billion). In addition to the planned improvements in volumes and margins, the company is also looking to increase its profitability thanks to the continued reduction in structural costs resulting from the ongoing transformation program. On the other hand, non-recurring income should be significantly lower than the figure of around 48 million euros recorded in the previous financial year. Further significant increases in energy and raw material prices, higher personnel costs and price increases linked to shortages and availability problems of certain products are also expected. Despite these negative factors, the company expects a further improvement in the EBITDA margin to a level of at least 8% in fiscal year 2022/23 (fiscal year 2021/22: 7.3%). The net result after tax should also increase at least slightly compared to the financial year 2021/22 (33 million euros).

Prove Fights allows push payment fraud in the UK https://techcomforces.com/prove-fights-allows-push-payment-fraud-in-the-uk/ Tue, 07 Jun 2022 13:36:02 +0000 https://techcomforces.com/prove-fights-allows-push-payment-fraud-in-the-uk/

Digital ID company Prove Identity partners with financial firms and mobile operators in the UK and uses its trust score to step up the fight against authorized push payment (APP) fraud and scams.

Prove’s Trust Score aims to help banks better ward off APP attacks by analyzing telecommunications signals and behavior patterns to detect possible fraud-like activity during high-risk transactions, according to a press release from the Prove. Tuesday, June 7.

“APP scams are part of a newer set of scams that rely on social engineering humans to authorize transactions. These scams are even more harmful since the transactions are initiated by consumers themselves, it It is therefore imperative that we understand what constitutes unusual activity while providing services to legitimate consumers safely and with little friction,” said Prove UK and EU Vice President Keiron Dalton.

Dalton added that Prove is a central part of what is now an “extremely collaborative ecosystem containing both major mobile operators and financial associations”. The company’s cryptographic authentication technology is focused on reducing fraud by protecting people “from being cheated out of their hard-earned savings.”

APP scams involve fraudsters tricking victims into voluntarily making large bank transfers to them, usually by phone, email, or text message. Once the victim authorizes the transfer, they have no legal protection to recover the losses.

Prove uses cryptographic authentication as a source of truth, which lets dependent parties such as financial institutions, businesses and governments know that data authenticated by users is actually true, according to the release.

The launch of Prove’s Mobile Auth successfully stopped fraudsters from using social engineering to compromise one-time SMS passcodes. Prove said it was the first company to “provide connectivity for scam signals with two major UK mobile operators”.

The company said more than 1,000 enterprise customers currently use Prove’s platform to process 20 billion customer inquiries each year across multiple industries – banking, lending, healthcare, gaming, crypto, e-commerce, marketplaces and payments.

BlackLine: Strong Results Reinforce Long-Term Bullish View https://techcomforces.com/blackline-strong-results-reinforce-long-term-bullish-view/ Fri, 03 Jun 2022 22:22:00 +0000 https://techcomforces.com/blackline-strong-results-reinforce-long-term-bullish-view/

BlackLine (NASDAQ: NASDAQ:BL) recently reported a strong start to the year with revenue up 22% to $120 million, beating expectations by about 1%. Despite the difficult macro-economic environment and growing fears around a possible recession, BlackLine continues to prove the importance TAM opportunity ahead of them.

Prior to the pandemic, many back-office accounting functions were performed using often outdated legacy systems or manual processes. BlackLine aims to provide an integrated accounting software platform, making it easier for businesses to perform all of their accounting functions. With the company having only a 2% market share, largely untapped, revenue growth could remain above 20% for many years.

Chart
Data by YCharts

The stock is down almost 30% since the start of the year, which is quite similar to the performance of NASDAQ. However, operationally, nothing has changed. Revenue growth remains impressive at over 20%, and operating margins and free cash flow remain healthy.

Valuation is still attractive at 9x FY22 earnings, although it will look even more attractive a few years from now. Using relatively conservative assumptions, we could see FY24 revenue reach $800 million, implying a current multiple of about 6x FY24 revenue, which isn’t bad for a company whose revenues are growing by 20% and more with long-term operating margins reaching 20% ​​and more.

For now, I think long-term investors should continue to accumulate stocks on weakness.

Financial review and advice

During the first quarter, BlackLine reported revenue growth of 22% year-over-year to $120.2 million, beating expectations by just under $1 million. Importantly, the company’s revenue growth actually accelerated by around 200 basis points from the 20% year-over-year growth seen in the fourth quarter, despite the still challenging macro environment. . So what is driving this strong growth? Well, there are a few factors.

First, the company added 72 net new customers in the quarter, ending with just under 3,900 customers and growing 12% year-on-year. On top of that, the total number of users grew 14% year-over-year to 338,000, which would imply that larger organizations with higher usages are starting to turn to BlackLine for accounting software.

Dollar revenue retention rate

black line

Second, dollar revenue turnover rates continue to remain extremely healthy at 98% in the quarter. This has generally moved between 97% and 98%, which means that very few customers actually leave BlackLine once they join the platform. With nearly 97% of the company’s overall revenue coming from subscription and support, BlackLine’s revenue stream is highly recurring and very sticky.

Additionally, the net dollar retention rate, which is a good measure of organic growth of existing users, was 110%, which was higher than the last quarters and years. In my opinion, this could be an early signal that companies that initially use BlackLine are finding rapid success and are ready to spend more with them.

Client Cohort

black line

This is further demonstrated by the company’s attractive land and expansion model. The chart above does a great job demonstrating that once BlackLine sets foot in the door of a new client, clients tend to grow quickly. In fact, there is a clear correlation between the longevity of customer cohorts and their willingness to spend more with BlackLine.

When looking at the company’s TAM, it seems that there is still a long avenue for growth. At first glance, you would think that every business in operation should have an integrated software platform that makes it easy to perform daily accounting and monthly/quarterly reporting functions for business owners. However, this is definitely not the case. In fact, the global pandemic has dramatically accelerated the transition to modern software platforms, especially within the back office.

TAM Opportunity

black line

Functions such as accounting still use legacy methods, which means there is plenty of room for penetration. BlackLine estimates it has a TAM opportunity of over $28 billion made up of 165,000 target customers. In the first quarter, the company had LTM revenue of $447 million and nearly 3,900 customers, representing only 2% of the total market.

Growth opportunities such as new customers (which grew 12% YoY in the first quarter), customer base expansion, expanding their partner ecosystem, international expansion and adjacent product development all remain growth levers that the company must explore over the next few years.

Target operating model

black line

Longer term, the company continues to expect improved margins. Unsurprisingly, the company’s software revenue stream generates gross margins consistently at or above 80%. This gives BlackLine significant leeway to invest in S&M and R&D, with these expenditures accounting for nearly 60% of 2021 revenue. Over time, the company will be able to better leverage these expenditures and it believes that it will be able to generate more than 20% non-GAAP operating margins, compared to 9% in FY21.

In the first quarter, non-GAAP operating margins were just 0.5%, down from around 7% a year ago. The main drivers of the margin contraction were due to the company’s increased investment in public cloud capacity and increased hiring. Yes, these are short-term headwinds that the company’s margins face, but additional investments like these will help both revenue growth and longer-term operational efficiencies.

The company also updated its guidance and expects FY22 revenue of $524 million to $528 million, reflecting 23 to 24 percent year-over-year growth. In addition, this forecast has also been raised from the company’s original expectations of $520 million to $525 million. Management also remains confident in the demand environment and is pleased with how it started the year.

We saw good and efficient execution across our teams, while continuing to invest in our growth initiatives. Coupled with the acceleration in our revenue growth in the first quarter, I am confident that we are moving the business in the right direction as we continue to invest in the demand opportunity that lies ahead.

Looking ahead, we intend to continue our planned pace of investment in 2022 as we remain focused on effectively investing in our go-to-market and customer success teams, as well as our public cloud infrastructure. We believe this will help accelerate long-term revenue growth, while strengthening our market leadership position.

So, despite the tougher macro-economic environment and fears of a possible recession, demand trends and the company’s pipeline have led it to raise its guidance for the year.

Evaluation

With the stock down nearly 30% year-to-date, much of this is due to the valuation reset we’ve seen in the tech sector. As investors fear rising rates and a possible recession, they have quickly withdrawn their funds from high-value stocks, as evidenced by the NASDAQ index’s decline of around 25% since the start of the year. Since the earnings release, the stock has risen 20% as strong growth trends remain attractive.

From an operational point of view, the company continues to show exceptional performance. Revenue growth is generally beating expectations and with the company’s long-term operating margin expecting non-GAAP operating margins to reach over 20%, this stock remains a clear buy.

Chart
Data by YCharts

The stock currently has a market capitalization of approximately $4.4 billion and with net debt of approximately $0.4 billion, the company has an enterprise value of approximately $4.8 billion.

Given management’s FY22 revenue forecast of $524 billion to $528 billion, this reflects a FY22 revenue multiple of just over 9x. The stock has historically traded well above 10x forward earnings, although we are currently in a different environment where a multiple of 15x forward earnings is no longer appropriate for a company whose earnings constantly increasing by 20% and more and expanding operating margins.

My thesis is quite simple, the massive TAM opportunity could drive revenue growth of over 20% for many years to come. BlackLine is the undisputed leader in accounting software and the global pandemic has accelerated the company’s investments in digital, which could propel accelerated growth. Additionally, non-GGAP operating margins are expected to reach over 20% in the long term.

If FY24 revenue is around $650 million and FY24 revenue is around $800 million, both of which represent fairly steady years of growth for the company, the stock could have a lot of potential. Using my FY24 revenue estimate, that translates to a valuation of 6x FY24 revenue. its pipeline is strong.

I wouldn’t be surprised if 12 months from now the stock is trading near $100, which is a nice upside from the current $75.
