Guru Investment Theses on Benefitfocus Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Benefitfocus Inc. - Nov 06, 2015

Shares of Benefitfocus, Inc., (NASDAQ:BNFT) a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software, detracted from the third quarter performance after performing well earlier in the year. The company conducted a secondary offering during the third quarter, which we believe weighed on the stock. It continued to generate robust financial results, growing its employee customer count by 36% and demonstrating initial traction with its newly launched modules. We believe that Benefitfocus serves an addressable market that is more than 100 times larger than its current business. (Neal Rosenberg)

Baron Funds Comments on Benefitfocus Inc. - Aug 24, 2015

Shares of Benefitfocus, Inc. (NASDAQ:BNFT), a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software, contributed to performance. The company generated robust first quarter results and announced a reseller agreement with SAP, which we believe will be an important long-term accelerant to sales. The stock’s multiple has been expanding since February, when the company received a strategic investment from private exchange operator Mercer. We believe Benefitfocus serves an addressable market more than 100 times larger than its current business. (Neal Rosenberg)

Baron Funds Comments on Benefitfocus Inc - Mar 20, 2015

The Fund added to its position in Benefitfocus, Inc. (BNFT), a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software. The company offers an integrated suite of solutions to help customers shop, enroll, manage, and exchange benefits information. Benefits are presented in a user-friendly manner that allows insured individuals and their dependents to access all their benefits in one place. The company is experiencing accelerating demand, driven by the Affordable Care Act and a shift towards defined contribution benefits, which requires the enhanced insight and consumer experience offered by modern software applications. We believe that Benefitfocus serves an addressable market more than 100 times larger than its current business, which should allow the company to compound revenue at more than 30% annually. (Neal Rosenberg)

Baron Growth Fund Comments on Benefitfocus Inc - Oct 24, 2014

Shares of Benefitfocus, Inc. (BNFT) fell in the third quarter, partly due to a secondary offering in July that increased the public float by more than 30%. Benefitfocus is the leading provider of cloud-based benefits software, offering an integrated suite of solutions to help customers more efficiently shop, enroll, manage, and exchange benefits information. We think Benefitfocus serves an addressable market more than 100 times larger than its current business, which should allow it to compound revenue at more than 30% annually. (Neal Rosenberg)

The company serves an addressable market that is more than 100 times larger than its current business, which we think should allow it to compound revenue at more than 30% annually. We believe Benefitfocus provides a compelling long-term investment opportunity at its current valuation. (Neal Rosenberg)
