Investment summary

Esker reported another year of double-digit organic revenue growth and confirmed that it expects to achieve similar in FY17. The company’s investment in headcount was higher than we expected and is likely to continue at a similar pace in FY17. While this weighs on our earnings forecasts, it should provide the foundations to support growth on a multi-year basis. Bolt-on acquisitions of businesses with a similar recurring revenue model and complementary technology are likely to accelerate the pace of growth.

Industry outlook

Esker's DPA software operates across four areas: document delivery, accounts payable, accounts receivable and sales order processing. Competitors are different for each business process and consist of business process outsourcers and specialist DPA software companies. Customers move to using DPA software to reduce paper-related costs and errors in processing, to speed up the cash conversion cycle, to improve process visibility within the enterprise and to improve customer service.
