“We recently met with SPC Commerce’s CEO and left the meeting more positive on the business momentum, growth strategy, and market positioning. We believe management has created a deep moat and a defensible business that is enabling trading partners in the retail industry to conduct B2B fulfillment transactions more accurately, with better visibility, and with fewer errors. On balance, the analytics product will continue to weigh on overall growth, putting a higher emphasis on fulfillment for growth. Bottom line: We believe management is doing a very good job navigating challenging retail industry operating trends, successfully delivering on its growth and profitability framework. We anticipate the good results the business has been delivering to continue in future reported results. Reiterate Outperform, PT to $120 (from $112).”
