Oppenheimer analyst Koji Ikeda maintained a Hold rating on BlackLine Inc (BL) today. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $48.12.
“Last week, we attended BlackLine’s annual InTheBlack London conference for its European customers and hosted investor meetings with CFO Mark Partin. Overall, we came away positive on the growth strategy, market positioning, and expanding partner channel. We detected high satisfaction levels during our customer and partner conversations, a data point that BlackLine’s vision and technology appear aligned with end-market demand. Bottom line: Over the past year, BlackLine scaled up its senior leadership team, began executing its refreshed go-to-market strategy, and expanded its partnership with SAP, which are the right things to do to drive the next leg of growth for the business, but are still early, in our view. We remain on the sidelines for now on BL shares given the elevated near-term execution risks.”
