Advent Software, Inc. Research Report
Accounting software company Advent is considering a sale and has hired investment bank Qatalyst to lead the effort. The news increased the company's shares by 11 percent, giving the company a market value of almost $1.5 billion. To improve its profit margins in the face of slower revenue growth, Advent has taken some cost-cutting initiatives, as many of its customers have been hesitant to spend following a long period of economic uncertainty. In the future, however, things are looking bright for the company as it has noted that new banking regulations in Europe will help Advent increase the region's share of its sales to 30 percent in three to five years. The company achieved record fourth quarter revenue of $92 million, and expects the full year revenue for 2013 to be around $373 million to $379 million.
