- 1. Mizuho analysts commented, "We think the company is able to achieve this given a strong product offering and a competitive environment stacked in its favor. Our discussions with customers and partners indicate some enthusiasm around improving innovation at the company, and while deployments remain primarily on-premise, commentary suggests evaluations of the cloud product. We see incremental growth over the next couple of years on: 1) $200mm CSS opportunity with the migration likely to be completed in 3Q18; 2) $500mm opportunity further down the road on cloud uptake; though, this is likely to be driven in large part by the installed base vs. net new customers. Some product enhancements could help support sales. The engineering organization appears more streamlined; efficiency gains in the n-t are likely to be reinvested for growth." (5/9/2018)
- 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Citrix reported impressive first-quarter results. Both earnings and revenues improved on a year-over-year basis. Top-line growth was primarily driven by strong subscription revenues. The company provided optimistic guidance for the second-quarter and full-year guidance. The company's efforts to reward shareholders through share buybacks are impressive. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis.
