Baron Funds Comments on Gartner Inc. - Feb 20, 2014

Shares of Gartner, Inc. (IT), the leading independent provider of research and analysis on the Information Technology industry, rose on reported strength in its core research segment, where contract value grew 12% in the most recent quarter. We expect to see improving sales momentum through 2014 as Gartner expands its sales force, modestly raises prices, benefits from pent-up demand in the U.S. and U.K. federal sectors, and expands its research coverage to serve a new constituency - chief marketing officers. We anticipate the company will continue to return capital via share repurchases, and we believe there is a chance for an accelerated capital return if Gartner adds moderate leverage to its balance sheet.





From Baron Funds' fourth quarter letter 2013 to shareholders.

Baron Funds Comments on Gartner Inc. - Apr 25, 2013

Gartner, Inc. (IT) is the leading independent provider of research and analysis on the information technology (IT) industry, generating most of its revenues from annual subscriptions to its analysts' research commentary. Its shares performed well, as Gartner delivered solid financial results among uneven global end markets. The company generated record new bookings in its research business, with the contract value of its subscription revenues increasing 14%. We expect the company to maintain its sales momentum through 2013 and beyond as it grows its sales force, raises prices, and expands its efforts to services for Chief Marketing Officers, who are rapidly becoming an important constituent in setting and executing corporate IT strategy.

From Baron Funds' first quarter 2013 letter.
