The Global Head of Liquidity Management Services, Citi Treasury and Trade Solutions, Stephen Randall, said, “Managing liquidity in multiple currencies is often a manual process, with significant time taken up by forecasting, FX management and the movement of cash between accounts. Process inefficiencies can lead to excess cash buffers and operational challenges. This solution automates and streamlines multiple steps into one, helping clients optimize both efficiency and liquidity.”
Following the news, UBS analyst Erika Najarian initiated a Hold rating on the stock with a price target to $67 (7.8% upside potential).
The rest of the Street is cautiously optimistic about the stock and has a Moderate Buy consensus rating based on 5 Buys and 3 Holds. The average Citigroup price target of $81.13 implies 30.6% upside potential.
