Ron Baron Comments on Concur Technologies Inc

July 28, 2014 | About:

Concur Technologies (CNQR), a provider of integrated travel and expense management software solutions, declined from $130 per share at the start of the year to $80 where we purchased shares. The rotation from growth companies gave us the opportunity to purchase the leading travel and expense management software provider with a multi-billion dollar opportunity at an attractive price. Concur remains in the early stages of its growth. It has an ability to expand its customers, products and geographies, while also providing suppliers with improved access to potential clients.

We initiated a position in Concur Technologies, Inc. after the stock fell due to a general rotation out of high growth stocks. Concur is a leading provider of integrated travel and expense management software solutions. The company sells its software on a subscription basis and delivers the software through the Internet (i.e., through the “cloud”). We believe Concur has a unique offering and a multi-billion dollar market opportunity in its core business. We expect the company to continue to grow rapidly through adding new customers, cross-selling new products,expanding into the small business market, expanding outside the U.S., and expanding into the government vertical. We also believe Concur has an opportunity to create an alternative distribution channel for travel suppliers and eliminate billions of dollars of transactions costs that are incurred annually in the travel supply chain.
