ServiceNow Introduces $15 Billion in Organic Revenue Target at Analyst Day; FVE Steady at $587

Dan Romanoff, CPA Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Dan Romanoff, CPA |

Wide-moat ServiceNow covered a range of topics at its virtual investor day on May 10, including a look into some product areas, the innovation pipeline, thoughts on the company’s competitive position, market size--all in the context of financial metrics. ServiceNow also announced the acquisition of Lightstep, a provider of application monitoring and observability. While no terms were disclosed, we view the deal as a bolt-on technology driven acquisition. Management maintained repeatedly that ServiceNow is an organically driven company. Overall we believe the event served as an exclamation point on our thesis, which centers on the company’s land-and-expand strategy of upselling into customer service and HR, industry vertical solutions, and higher priced Pro and Enterprise versions--all while generating a strong margin profile. We maintain our $587 per share fair value estimate and see the stock among our top picks in software with its valuation increasingly attractive.

Transparency is how we protect the integrity of our work and keep empowering investors to achieve their goals and dreams. And we have unwavering standards for how we keep that integrity intact, from our research and data to our policies on content and your personal data.

We’d like to share more about how we work and what drives our day-to-day business.

We sell different types of products and services to both investment professionals and individual investors. These products and services are usually sold through license agreements or subscriptions. Our investment management business generates asset-based fees, which are calculated as a percentage of assets under management. We also sell both admissions and sponsorship packages for our investment conferences and advertising on our websites and newsletters.

How we use your information depends on the product and service that you use and your relationship with us. We may use it to:

  • Verify your identity, personalize the content you receive, or create and administer your account.
  • Provide specific products and services to you, such as portfolio management or data aggregation.
  • Develop and improve features of our offerings.
  • Gear advertisements and other marketing efforts towards your interests.

Maintaining independence and editorial freedom is essential to our mission of empowering investor success. We provide a platform for our authors to report on investments fairly, accurately, and from the investor’s point of view. We also respect individual opinions––they represent the unvarnished thinking of our people and exacting analysis of our research processes. Our authors can publish views that we may or may not agree with, but they show their work, distinguish facts from opinions, and make sure their analysis is clear and in no way misleading or deceptive.

To further protect the integrity of our editorial content, we keep a strict separation between our sales teams and authors to remove any pressure or influence on our analyses and research.
