Optimism Abounds for AspenTech As It Navigates Its New Era; Maintain $220 FVE

Dan Romanoff Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Dan Romanoff |

We retain our fair value estimate for AspenTech of $220 as the company navigates its new era amid a shifting environment. While our estimate is lower than the current share price, which we view as inflated from the market’s excitement following Aspen’s transaction with Emerson Electric, we believe the company has a bright outlook. In our view, AspenTech is well-poised to capitalize on secular trends, acquisition opportunities, and its sticky existing customer base to pave a long runway for growth, as evidenced in our wide moat rating with a stable trend.
