In a report released today, Shaul Eyal from Oppenheimer reiterated a Buy rating on Varonis Systems (VRNS), with a price target of $80. The company’s shares closed on Tuesday at $56.60.
“Following investor meetings with VRNS’ CFO & VP IR key takeaways include: (1) We believe VRNS has barely scratched the surface of its extensive market opportunity consisting of ~40-50K potential customers (in US & Europe combined) with 1,000-8,000 employees and an overall TAM of $15B; (2) Competiton remains very limited as former legacy providers such as Dell’s Quest (DVMT-NYSE, $104.46, SYMC’s former Veritas’ Data Insights have changed control (disruption) and have underinvested in product innovation; (3) We positively view the partnerships with SPLK and CYBR as further testament to the high mission-critical nature of data security (“must have” rather than “nice to have”); and (4) We believe VRNS remains well positioned to benefit from industry tailwinds (GDPR) and a healthy spending environment. Outperform.”
