Guru Investment Theses on SciQuest Inc

Meridian Funds Comments on SciQuest Inc - Jun 20, 2014

SciQuest, Inc. (SQI) also was the Fund’s largest detractor, experiencing a stock price decline over the period. We believe that this negative performance was due to shareholders taking profits at the end of the year after the stock returned nearly 80% for the 12-month period ending December 31, 2013. SciQuest is a software company that helps its customers connect with their suppliers and lower procurement costs. The company uses an on-demand model, which results in a high percentage of recurring revenues. We believe that this is a $4 billion potential market, which provides a long runway for growth considering SciQuest currently has less than $100 million in annual revenues.
