“We believe this also de-risks the company’s F21 targets (which they maintained again). Recall that the F21 targets do not include the impact of subscription conversions and assume lower than market level growth rates. Given management’s progress and continued execution against their plan as well as the announcement of further perpetual discontinuations (on 1/1/19) we believe the company is positioned to exceed its F21 metrics. We have raised our outlook for F21 accordingly. We remain Outperform rated and are raising our price target to $85 from $75 prior.”,” Evercore ISI’s analyst commented.
