  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "After the close QAD positively preannounced solid FQ4 results that showed revenue upside, strong cloud bookings, and continued improvement in the subscription mix shift. The only blemish would be a slight operating income shortfall, but this is one of those “good problem” scenarios – higher up-front sales commissions on better cloud bookings (where revenues come in ratably) drove the miss. We’d note that with the cutover to ASC 606, where commissions better match revenue recognition, this shouldn’t be an issue going forward." (2/27/2018)
