Royce Investment Partners Comments on Upland Software

Guru stock highlight

September 15, 2020 | About:

Upland Software (NASDAQ:UPLD) is an interesting company. It buys-and-builds cloud-based enterprise work management software that helps organizations to plan, manage, and execute projects. Over the past decade, the cloud-computing infrastructure has cratered the fixed costs of starting technology-enabled businesses. This has attracted more than $70 billion of venture capital investment in enterprise software. However, more than $50 billion of that capital lies fallow with zombie ownership groups because not all of these companies become successful.

This is where Upland Software comes in. Historically, Upland acquired enterprise software businesses that were chasing new customers and straining to become cash-flow positive. Upland transitions a company's focus to sustainable growth by satisfying the company's existing customers. This typically allows for better—often significantly better—margins and cash flows. Even more important, Upland has reached sufficient scale in its target application verticals while coming out of an investment cycle that should boost growth and raise prospective returns.
